BOOM! Preview: The Short While

‘The Short While’ is about the tragic but redemptive love story of two men who meet, quickly fall in love, and then find themselves falling apart…

In the distant future, amidst a society rebuilding after a long and oppressive regime,  two men accidentally swap their jackets at a party and are thrust into a most opportune meeting. In each other they find what they’ve been missing all along – love. Companionship. Honesty. And the joy of being able to trust your heart to someone else.

But no love is perfect, and they also find everything they ever feared – loss of self. Loss of freedom. And the tragedy of losing your heart to someone who can’t keep it safe.
