Synopsis:

The untold story of the last days in the tragic times of Oscar Wilde, a person who observes his own failure with ironic distance and regards the difficulties that beset his life with detachment and humor.

Following Oliver Wilde’s release from imprisonment under the ridiculous crime of gross indecency with men, he receives a letter from his lover Bosie that came while incarcerated/working off two years of hard labor, and within what feels like the span of five minutes Oliver goes from tearing apart the letter in front of his peers determined to never allow himself to head down the path of homosexuality again, to quickly rearranging the fragmented paper scraps like a jigsaw puzzle eager to read his supportive words.
