A directionless teenager living on the outskirts of Brooklyn struggles to escape his miserable home life and navigate questions of self-identity, as he balances his time between his wayward friends, a potential new girlfriend, and older men he meets online. Unfolding over a single lazy summer, this raw spin on the “coming out” drama offers a brutally unreserved look at masculinity and punch-drunk sexual awakening.
Winner of a Best Director Award at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival.
