Boys will be men. But what do and don’t they share with their friends? Four male models in Thailand act tough to each other and the outside world, but they open up in one-on-one interviews. Visceral and intimate.
In this short documentary, four male models make a sincere attempt to get to know themselves better during a Thai retreat. While the most sensitive boy actively talks about the patterns he wants to break and spends a lot of time in bed, the most dominant member of the group likes to be in the spotlight. Among themselves, they act over the top; they ride scooters naked, rent ostentatious villas and show off their Instagram photoshoots. But in private conversations with the filmmaker, they confess their individual insecurities.
