Synopsis

Knowingly, even aggressively sexual, 16-year-old Martin locks his seductive sights on Sebastian, his recently engaged, 30-something swimming instructor. Faking an injury, Martin eventually tricks his teacher into letting him spend the night at his apartment. As Sebastian begins to realize the possible sexual interest on the part of his student, he is conflicted. He is dismissive, but his curiosity is piqued by the boy's overt advances. An extraordinary event soon forces the increasingly troubled Sebastian to question his own feelings for young Martin. Absent is not a simple boy-meets-boy drama. It's a taut, and at times, incredible sexy drama of repressed passion, guilt and regret.

"A sexually repressed, class-A creep out worthy of Hitchcock.""-Timothy E. Raw, Cine Outsider

The Teddy Award winning film by Marco Berger, the director of "Plan B" and "Hawaii."
