On first sight (and probably also on second and third), Jake (Leigh
Sorrell) is just a big asshole: He beats up his girlfriend Hannah
(Natascha Sauer), neglects his daughter (Chelsea Impey), acts as if he's
the provider of his family even though he's unemployed, and he stays out
for days on end, leaving Hannah worried sick, even if she has more to be
worried about once he's back.
The one thing Jake for some reason does
worry about is his friend Arran (Matthew Hopkins), whom he hasn't seen in
years but still writes a letter every week, just to tell him how great his
life is at the moment - even if it isn't. Thing is, Arran is the only one
who was there for him when his alcoholic mum (Liz Mente Bishop) died, and
thus he's the only person whom he ever really cared for ...
Jake meets Ethan (Wade Radford) at a gay bar, and even though Jake
wouldn't consider himself gay in a million years, they start to have a gay
relationship before long. Ethan is a washed up but carefree little drug
dealer who lives in the moment and couldn't give a fuck about anyone else,
including the guy (Zachary Ockenden) he's actually in love with. But even
if Ethan seems to be, he's not stupid, he knows there's more to Jake than
meets the eye (Jake never mentions his girlfriend or daughter for
instance), and he sets out to find out ... and eventually even tracks down
and teams up with Hannah to find out Jake's big secret - but it might not
do them any good ...
Even if the title might promise quite a
bit of sleaze, this film features anything but, instead being an in a
weird way rather touching human drama that might come across intentionally
blunt at times, even disgusting (again, intentionally so), but it does
feature a compelling story with plenty of heart and soul - and quite a bit
of suspense, as this is no feelgood drama but a film about a wife-beater,
and it's directed accordingly as a thriller rather than a tearjerker or
something ... and everything does work out, this is a rather interesting
and quite unusual piece of low budget cinema that really deserves quite a
bit of attention!
