CGiii Comment

This multi-layered gem is - quite easily - a precursor to a main feature. It has all the elements in place...plus some damn fine technical talent...cinematography, editing.

Well, Mr Leighton-Dore you have produced something very special indeed.

The(ir) Blurb...

After the unexpected death of his mother, a young football player, Julian Maxwell, finds himself struggling to support his depressed, unemployed father while fighting to keep safe the secret he once shared with his mother: He's not only gay, but performs drag shows.
