'Superlatively acted culture-clash indie chillingly evokes primal dread and sexual transgression as a gay Californian teen meets his Nebraskan farm relatives' - Variety

Australian Premiere

Californian teen, Ryder (Logan Miller), goes through a re-closeting of sorts as he and his parents travel to the picturesque American Midwest to visit their extended family. If Ryder's short shorts aren't alarming enough, a bloodstain on the dress of his precocious young cousin, Molly (Ursula Parker), pushes this family reunion into excruciatingly menacing territory. Even then, for some reason, his mother (Robin Weigert) won't let him come out. Sitting uncomfortably between Tom at the Farm and Deliverance, Sobel's film will have audiences squirming in their seats as they are forced to continually second guess what's really going down with this most redneck of families.
