Movie Info

Walt (Tim Streeter) is a lonely convenience store clerk who has fallen in love with a Mexican migrant worker named Johnny (Doug Cooeyate). Though Walt has little in common with the ambivalent object of his affections -- including a shared language -- his desire to possess Johnny prompts a sexual awakening that results in taboo trysts and a tangled love triangle. This twisted tale of love gone wild is based on Walt Curtis' provocative autobiographical novel.
