Synopsis

Fleeting encounters, conversations about identity and experiencing life and love in the most authentic way. Six contemporary stories of men exploring love, lust and modern dating. These award winning French shorts bring raw and diverse stories with beautiful aesthetics, eclectic music and astonishing cinematography.

Bootyful
A young woman's Saturday night takes an unexpected and exciting turn when she meets a liberated queer man who challenges her hard-set ideas on dance, seduction and love.

Gare Aux Coquins
It's Tonio's first time in Corsica. He wanders across the island and on dating apps until stumbling upon the Oracle, a user who tells him about gay life in Corsica. Their conversation is reenacted with an actor who seems to connect deeply with the Oracle's story.

Herculanum
Two men discover a chemistry between them after their first date.

Masculine
Arthus, a twenty-year-old man with a virile and strong physique, returns home one evening with an unexpected company. There is something different about this boy than the kind of guys Arthus is used to having sex with, because Marin, who is around the same age as Arthus, has a completely different passion to that of his: drag.

Woeful Flesh
One night, alone at home, Edouard gets ready. He crosses Brussels to join a man.

The Fall
In the winter of 1994 in the French suburbs, Léo and Baptiste, two polar opposite students, meet up one evening to work on a school presentation.
