Feature film

After running away from the army, Bruno travels to the city where his long lost brother was last seen. The brother is not there, but Bruno meets his brother’s friends, learns about his life, and even experiences the same things his lost brother did. Away from home, Bruno finds a new family and discovers a space where he is free to be himself and explore his sexuality. A wonderful portrayal of how it is to be young and queer and having to deal with homophobia when you just want to dance.
