The Screen Guide

This film deals with homophobia and misogyny. It begins with a gay bashing, then explores the resonance of this violence within the relationship of the people involved, between the 'victim' and his 'rescuer'. Later, at a martial arts class, a demonstration of a defence hold by the rescuer brings the first flashback to the bashing. We are introduced to the basher's girlfriend, and her growing desire to leave him. The film culminates in two dance sequences.
