As in his second feature film weekend (2011), A Desconosidos (We are all strangers) Andrew Hay explores how an initially casual sexual encounter between two strangers can turn into a deeply intimate bond. Adam (Andrew Scott) lives a solitary life that weighs on him like an endless night, partly due, as we soon discover, to the sudden death of his parents when he was 12 years old. Until one evening, our neighbor Harry (Paul Mescal) knocked on the door. Hay expands the starting point in a proposal that enters into the realm of the supernatural without departing from the context of realistic drama in a distance-keeping manner.
