CGiii Comment

It's almost like a condensed, dramatization of Flee.

What it lacks in length is made up...with just one look...the first time inside a gay club! Remember that feeling?

Nowadays, kids won't get it the way the more-seasoned do...Heaven, in the early 80s, walked in...and, realised that Heaven was an actual place on earth!



The(ir) Blurb...

An Arabic gay son faces violence from family because being gay, so he manages to escape to freedom.
