ANIMAL HUSBANDRY

a gay bedroom drama

Like two doomed stars circling a black hole, Michael and Harry are the most passionate of lovers who can't seem to stay away from each other even as they burn toward oblivion. Harry sees in Michael a chance to right his regrets while Michael sees in Harry a way out; but are they helping each other or hurting each other? Animal Husbandry is a gay bedroom drama that explores an explosive Daddy/Son romance and deconstructs the roles that psychosexual desires play in adult relationships.
