The film is a crime thriller with exploitative elements — exploring the power imbalance and dynamics of masculine relationships.

Todd, a 19-year-old reoffender, has just been released from prison with no direction or support in his life. He seeks refuge with Roman — a charismatic 80-year-old whom offers Todd a job selling corporate documents.

Inside a decrepit inner-city apartment we follow the queer dynamics between the characters as Todd attempts to regain agency in his life. Yet, as Roman’s ulterior motives begin to surface, and the pressure builds, will it be enough for Todd to take his chances — or is he destined for a life of incarceration?

The project is a graduate film for Swinburne University’s Bachelor of Screen Production course.

Mature Male Lead

Roman is intelligent and charismatic — and uses this to manipulate those below him. He is playing the role of a man in complete control — he does this to give himself purpose and agency, which in turn fuels his lust for power. I’m doing so he starts to believe the delusions that he’s crafted to justify his actions.

Anyone, aged 65 to 85
