LONESOME

(Lonesome)

by Craig Boreham

Australia 2022, 95'

Two young men make a connection neither of them expects or knows how to navigate

Casey, a young man from the countryside running from a small-town scandal, finds himself down and out in the big smoke of Sydney. When he meets Tib, a young city lad, struggling with his own scars of isolation, there’s chemistry, not only sexually but also emotionally as both men find something they have been missing. Can they overcome their own insecurities and let the other in or are the walls they have built too strong to knock down?
