CGiii Comment

Do not underestimate the power of the short film, here is the lesson.

This is the earlier version of The Mudge Boy - it is more brutal than the feature simply because of the lack of backstory - and for this reason, Burke was given the opportunity to expand his idea - and quite rightly too.

A fine short film that will leave you thinking.


Watch...

The(ir) Blurb...

Beneath a railroad bridge a young rural gay man begins to his explore his gay feelings with the aid of an understanding friend.
