Synopsis

Steven is a gay 16-year-old in a middle class English suburb. Only his best friend Linda knows about his sexuality, but he is moving towards coming out to his parents and perhaps at school. His big problem, though, is that he fancies the school jock John, a rich hunk who seems out of his league in more ways than one. However, a chance encounter in a public toilet reveals that John, too, may be gay and the two of them must deal with this knowledge. What seems like a dream come true for Steven is a nightmare for John, and the stakes are raised when Steven submits an anonymous essay to the school magazine about being gay.
