| An aging man's reflections on a closeted life
An old gay man spends his day alone and reflects about his life and the lovers he has known. This is a realistic story of one man's journey through life and the choices that he has made. He's not a villain or hero and he's known happiness and sorrow. He apparently never had the courage to `come out' and at this point no one cares.

This short film (under an hour) is thought provoking and well made but may find very little audience today. There are not enough `skin scenes' to tantalize a modern audience and we Americans are not particularly interested in our seniors.

This movie will not "change your life" but it may prompt a healthy bit of introspection among its viewers that may keep them from ending up at the same point as the film's main character.
