Directed by Ben A. Williams
A memorable encounter one night between two hunky soccer players, 19-year-old Jason (Russell Tovey, LOOKING) and Ade (Arinze Kene, FANTASTIC BEASTS AND WHERE TO FIND THEM), is the basis of this provocative romantic drama. It’s the night before their first-ever professional match and Jason and Ade, friends since childhood, are keyed up in their shared hotel room in Romania. Lounging in their tighty whities, they consider going out to pick up a couple of “birds” but it’s already late and they should be sleeping. Over-excited, instead, they chat, playfully wrestle, watch a teammate’s sex tape, and prep for the next day. Then—out of nowhere—one kisses the other. The impact of this “pass” reverberates through the next ten years of their lives—a decade of fame and failure and secrets and lies that won’t be resolved until Jason and Ade meet up again. Will the truth of what happened that fateful night finally come out? Based on an award winning play, this sensitively rendered film features a career changing performance by Russell Tovey.
