Overview

Overview Akron

Directed by: Brian O'Donnell and Sasha King
Benny and Christopher are young freshmen at their rural Ohio college when they meet playing football and begin to fall for each other–hard. But when Christopher’s mother reveals a tragic past event shared by the two boys, their young love must endure an unexpected test. Will love be able to conquer their families’ mutual pain? This sweetly earnest and well crafted feature debut is refreshing in that the lovers just happen to be gay. Their story is universally relatable and a compelling argument for the power of forgiveness in the face of unthinkable tragedy and love that persists and overcomes.
