What happens when Casey, a young Aussie country guy on the run from a small-town scandal, tries to rebuild his life in the big city, Sydney — Australia’s cultural and queer capital.
When he meets Tib, a street-smart city boy struggling with his own scars of isolation, both men discover an emotional and sexual connection that they have been missing. But can their relationship work? Both men find something they have been missing but neither of them knows quite how to negotiate it. Is it love or just sex?
