Product Description:

This seething political drama stars Matt Newton as Henry, the closeted homosexual son of a rabidly right wing senator (Michael Lerner, who is terrifying). Known in liberal circles as "the Nazi from North Carolina," the senator is determined to use his college-age son to win the young people's vote at an upcoming rally. Understandably scared to come out to his bullying father, Henry finds himself snared in a take-no-prisoners battle with his conscience and his circumstance, especially when he's seduced by a boy at college named Anthony (Jack Noseworthy), who turns out to be a staunch pro-gay activist with a plan to out Henry and subsequently sully the senator's red-state reputation.

Framed within the context of a newspaper interview, the story unfolds in a series of flashbacks, which director Zak Tucker captures with dynamic handheld camera work and jumpy editing (an impressive debut, especially considering he stepped in at the last minute after the original director bailed right before shooting started). Karen Allen is a welcome face as the senator's long-suffering wife, a woman who has chosen booze and gracious living over the important things in life. Valerie Geffner is also memorable as Anthony's HIV-positive roommate and co-conspirator. The script from Ryan Shiraki and Lecia Rosenthal provides lots of sub-plots, trenchant political discourse, and big soap-opera-style confrontations, all of which the talented cast is more than game for.
