Personals

A socially anxious teen responds to a Craigslist ad for a glory hole. He strikes an unexpected connection with the figure behind the sheet. Feeling his anonymity threatened, the figure tries to course-correct. The teen resists until the figure snaps and abruptly ends the encounter. Feeling a strange connection to this faceless man, the teen returns. He pushes the figure to embrace what they both fear most and be vulnerable. The two men finally let their guards down; they share a moment of true intimacy.
