Parting is Such Sweet Sorrow

The push and pull of relationships are examined in these dramatic shorts that reflect the spirit of exploration inside each one of us, as well as the consequences of standing still for too long. In ALL GOOD THINGS, Isaac takes a road trip with his partner Levi, the last chance for them to be together before Levi reaches his new destination. In THE SPARK, a small occurrence awakens doubts between a couple who’ve been together for ten years. In MANKIND, even the planet Earth is too stifling for a restless man who dreams of interstellar travel, even if it means leaving behind his lover. An older gay couple spice up their sex life with a threesome, but the young man in their bed grows increasingly emotionally entagled in their marriage in LAVENDER. And in TOP 3, Anton and David are frustrated by their differences: Anton wants to live in the rural north of Sweden while David likes city life, travel, and excitement.
