Private Project

Ext. Toronto. Night.

Walking home alone at night, Ben crosses paths with a handsome stranger on a bridge. When he introduces himself, the stranger, Josh, reminds him that they had a fling years ago in Montreal. As they reminisce about their time together, they dare to relive an exciting sexual escapade, but something’s not quite right about all this.
