Toronto streets, bars, parks and galleries provide a colourful, romantic background for writer-director James Fanizza’s debut feature about a highly inconvenient love affair.

Alex (played by Fanizza) is an aspiring artist stuck in a Joe job and in a relationship he doesn’t have much patience for. When boyfriend Nelson (Guifré Bantjes-Rafols) goes away for a week, he asks Alex to check in on his cousin, who’s visiting Canada from Argentina. Although the two strangers have little in common, Alex quickly develops feelings for cousin Sebastian (super hunk Alex House). The question is—will their collective baggage prevent them from making a real connection?

Adapted from a short film that screened at Inside Out in 2014, Sebastian's impressive supporting performances (including comic relief from RuPaul’s Drag Race contestant Brian McCook, aka Katya Zamolodchikova) help create a world that’s engaging, sweet and, sometimes, authentically raw.
