François (Dean Lotz) lives a skilfully controlled, well managed family life, in Bloemfontein, South Africa.
He is wholly unprepared when a chance encounter unravels his clean and ordered existence. 23-year-old Christian (Charlie Keegan) is the son of a long lost friend. By all accounts he is the personification of a handsome young man in the prime of his life. François is so disarmed by the young man that it instantly ignites within him an all consuming infatuation and misplaced lust.
Extras: Interview with director Oliver Hermanus.
