A contemporary multisexual drama that can be described as the dark, Belgian, yet equally-sexy version of queer cult film Shortbus.
The film describes a group of good friends coming to terms with the unexpected death of group member Hugo. Ana, his partner, attempts to overcome his loss by going to sex clubs, while is brother, Arthur (impeccably played by Tristan Schotte) finds comfort in Grindr hook-ups. One night, however, he begins an affair with sexy Graciano, played by the captivating Gabriel Da Costa, who has yet to come to terms with his bisexuality and is in a relationship with Dalhia.
The film opens with a mesmerizing sexy scene that takes us on a journey into the world of thirty-somethings attempting to find their own place in the big city – in this case, Brussels, which films beautifully. Viewing is 18+
