Synopsis
When Sebastian meets Andreas for the first time he knows they belong together. As they weave through Stockholm’s back streets and forgotten parks, shoplifting beer from a 7-Eleven and dancing the tango on an abandoned rooftop, their intoxicating connection takes hold. While Sebastian defies gender norms – flouting convention in his androgynous fluidity – straight-identifying Andreas becomes unable to accept his attraction to another man as their relationship progresses. The film captures the intimacy of its subjects with an intensity and charge that is simultaneously transgressive and deeply romantic.
