The blurb: An animated musical starring an young man who is afraid to come out…who is afraid to come out of the locker. The plot takes place on a beach year 1960, where a couple of happy twins and their lady friend like to spend the summer.
This is a wonderfully cheerful little animation about embracing our true selves, the obstacles we face and how it’s always good to have two handsome blokes on your side. At least, that’s how I saw it.
