protect me from what i want

“Daz is looking for love. Saleem is looking for sex. Cruising at an underground archway, these two worlds collide in a tale of loneliness and longing in a city late at night.”

 

… in 5 words:

Surprising. Real. Raw. Beautiful. Hopeful…

 

… in 25 words:

The inner conflict between religion, family values and one’s own sexuality is beautifully skirted upon without over the top drama. It left me feeling hopeful.

 

… in 50 words:

Elliott Tittensor certainly is a bit of eye-candy and yes there is a sex scene. What makes this short stand out is the sensuality of what happens before the sex and what leaves you hopeful is the ending: “just turn around”. Where’s my inner city romance? Manchester here I come.
