CGiii Comment

As beautifully composed as it is...this as terrifying as it is disturbing.

Teen sexuality has changed dramatically with the internet and dating apps...kids lying about their age, men ready to exploit.

There really has to be a way to protect these vulnerable boys. Films like this highlight the problem...they, unfortunately, don't supply an answer.

An astounding piece of work about a dangerous and hideous reality.

The(ir) Blurb...

Since beginning to explore his sexuality and identity privately via the Internet and dating apps, thirteen-year-old Xiao-Wei has felt distanced from his straight friends, preferring the company of his online gay friends. In keeping the fact that he's gay from his best friend Pin-Rui, Xiao-Wei doesn't realize his closest friend has been carrying a secret of his own.
