drama, comedy, storytelling, 85 min.

Blake Walton tells the sharp truth in his poignant and funny evolution from gay youth to manhood as he finally understands his father when he becomes a father himself. “One cannot be what one is naturally born to be, at the core, not. It ain’t something that comes and goes, folks, that can be changed through belief, for instance, because it is in the atoms of our being, it is something essential.” Best Premiere Award, United Solo 2013 & 2012.
