As the 21st century begins, ex-pat pianist Beau is caught off-guard by Rufus – a London lawyer more than 30 years his junior who he meets on a gay dating site. After a lifetime of disappointment, Beau’s keeping his expectations low. But Rufus is part of a new, hopeful generation, and not even Beau can convince him they don’t have just as much of a right to happiness as anyone else. This remarkably moving, brilliant love story reflects on the triumphs and heartbreaks of gay lives in the modern era, celebrating all those who paved the way.
