Adam and Stuart are attacked in the streets after a night out in a local bar. They are both left with physical scars but how will they cope with the emotional ones?

The fight for equality is far from over. Hate Crimes against LGBTQ+ people have surged nearly 80% in the UK since 2017. A recent UK Government Survey also revealed that 1 in 3 same-sex couples avoided holding hands with their partner in public for fears of violence.

Starring Rick Yale, Kevin Grogan, Francesca Reid, Darren Baba and Tom Phillips.
