After his heart is broken in Mexico, American filmmaker Bethel relocates to Chicago and sets up a new video project: He arranges meetings with strangers and then casts them as lovers in a film-within-the-film that explores the nature of gay male relationships. Mixing fiction and documentary along with frank conversations with his mother, Bethel creates a liminal space between staged performance and genuine intimacy. The result is a tender exploration of hookup culture, gay sexuality, and universal questions about what it means to love and be loved.
