Set in 1962, the tale of a love triangle between Jay and Beverly Mcklien and a man named Ricky.


Jay and Beverly seem to be your perfect stereotypical mid-century couple, but deep down, Jay has a secret. He has recently met a man named Ricky. Jay and Ricky become romantically involved, risking everything. From there, everything in their world changes, and coming to terms with the fallout will be something which all three have to go through together.


Writer/director Ryan Sarno fills the story with passionate caring for his characters and creates an atmosphere that feels authentic and sometimes haunting. It is an exploration of the challenges that occur when hidden desires clash with societal norms and expectations, and the choices one must make in the face of forbidden love.



“If there is one thing I am sure of it’s that I know the audience will watch this film and feel pain, sadness, but most importantly love. They will empathize with the emotion we all feel in its many forms. They will experience a rollercoaster of fear that in time gets let go for love.” - Ryan Sarno
