IN THE MOVIES

By Aaron Chang

The Story:
David is your average gay, Chinese guy with an average job and a slightly more than average husband. So it’s a little surprising when his first boyfriend, Sam, shows up at his doorstep, sixteen years after they last saw each other. Now married to a woman and unsatisfied with his life, Sam hopes to take David up on an offer he made all those years ago. It’s the stuff of movies, but as David and Sam find out, reality isn’t always as neat and tidy as a Hollywood romance film.

Featuring: 
David - MinSoo Jeong
Samuel - Kenny Wong
