Tan Lines

 

"It is said that you, Midget Hollows, were pulled from the ocean itself. Look after your mother Midget, she caught you and she can throw you back" ...and so begins the story of Midget Hollows teenager, surfer, partier, pervert.

 

Midget and his friends live the quintessential surf lifestyle: consume as much weed and booze they can find. Beneath the surface of this idealistic lifestyle, Midget starts to feel the claustrophobia of small town life.

 

Cass, the older brother of Midgets best friend, arrives back in town. Midget is instantly attracted to his confidence, his openness about his homosexuality, and his graceful surfing skills. Midget and Cass embark on a passionate affair, but it isnt long before the relationship feels the strains of secrecy. Midget finds that his sexuality and the culture he inhabits might not be compatible.

 

A gay surf movie, a coming-of-age story, or a punks view of teenage sexuality, Tan Lines is a wild ride of passion, love, laughs, sex and drugs set against the backdrop of the Pacific ocean.
