Synopsis

Evan Jones, a child orphan who, for years, was shifted from one foster home to another. Now a disaffected college student, he lives with his wealthy boyfriend, Chris. Their social and financial disparities have made their relationship increasingly volatile despite their mutual love for one another. While sifting through old relics at an elderly man's yard sale, Evan finds an 8mm movie camera. The man offers to teach Evan how to use it if he comes back the following week. Upon returning, Evan meets the man's 43-year-old son, Peter. They strike up a conversation and Peter gives him reels of old 8mm movies that are collecting dust in the garage. Evan's friendship with Peter soon turns romantic, and he pushes for greater understanding of himself and the notions of family, love and fulfillment.

""An intelligent look at imbalance in relationships... this is a more sophisticated film than it might first appear to be.""-Jennie Kermode, Eye for Films
