For every act of bigotry in adolescents, usually the child gets the blame, not what made them this way.
How can we blame the child who was conformed to be homophobic? Do we truly believe that he would have grew up to hate the same way without the influence of family/society?
This tradition of hatred has been passed down through generations and is still well alive and ongoing.
This film is a depiction of victims of this tradition; two little boys tangled in an unconventional story of a suppressed love.
