A short drama that explores antisemitism, queerness, and spirituality. Daniel, a teenage boy caught in a web of lies, is pulled in different directions by his best mate and burgeoning Neo-Nazi, James; his secret lover, Isaac; and his orthodox Jewish father, Adam. As his ability to juggle his identities falters, he finds himself haunted by a Hasidic spectre demanding a sacrifice.
WHY WE LIKE THIS FILM: An interesting story about queer and Jewish identity from Australia.
