No Strings | Directed by Eoin Maher | 15min. | United Kingdom, 2015.
Recently moved to London, Bryn is finding it difficult to cope with his new surroundings. Seeking a distraction he invited Sean, an intrusive extrovert over for no strings sex. When the encounter ends Bryn wants to be alone again but Sean doesn’t want to leave. Sharing a bed for the night, real intimacy begins to surface between the two men. However, negotiating towards being genuinely open with each other proves a challenge when both have something to hide. Engaging and challenging, this story is about coping in the world when it’s not how you thought it would be - and about how sometimes you find comfort in someone when you least expect it.
