About the Film

François lives a skillfully controlled, well managed life, in Bloemfontein, South Africa. Father of two daughters and a devoted husband, he is wholly unprepared when a chance encounter unravels his clean and ordered existence. 23-year-old Christian is the son of a long lost friend. By all accounts he is the personification of a handsome young man in the prime of his life. François is so disarmed by the young man that it instantly ignites within him an all consuming infatuation and misplaced lust. Despite his carefully concealed disgust for himself, François pours out the lost emotions he has despised all his life in what becomes a desperate attempt at taking from the world that which he has always secretly wanted…happiness.

We gasped!

This film is groundbreaking - the cinematography is excellent with many scenes calling upon the viewer to make their own conclusions about what the characters are feeling.
The acting was very believable and the way the characters developed made for a fascinating story. At times it was uncomfortable but compelling viewing. but we couldn't look away! Watch it - it will make you gasp!
