What happens when a straight boy is put through Conversion Therapy?
ARI, an innocent 11-year old boy, is manipulated to believe he is a homosexual by his own father, who happens to run a conversion therapy camp aimed to “fixing” young boys.
Twenty five years later, ARI finds himself deeply in love with a woman as he contemplates marriage. But, unable to commit, chronic internalized homophobia pushes him to once again examine his authentic self; questioning if he’s struggling with childhood PTSD, or living his life in denial.
