Dylan Wells (Chad Edward Bartley) has a good job, a great apartment and an exciting relationship with Ken Sparks (Gaetano Jones, Boystown), his sexy well traveled boyfriend who just might be “the one.” A great life, or so he believes, until Ken is suddenly called away to tend to a failing real estate deal, and then disappears. Against Ken’s wishes, Dylan impetuously follows Ken’s trail to Phoenix, where he discovers Ken’s double life with the equally sexy and earthy Demetrius Stone (Jeff Castle), who had no idea that Dylan existed. Dylan and Demetrius are forced together to discover what happened to Ken and what happened to their relationships with him. The exploration of their separate pasts explores innocence lost with life’s hard lessons learned.
Filmmaker Michael Akers has remastered and re-edited his highly symbolic and metaphorical film to align with his original vision. Watch this amazing and powerful story as it was originally intended: in black-and-white!
