Passion blossoms between two young men in a juvenile reform center


In a youth correctional facility, Joe is preparing for his return to society, uncertain as to what life will look like on the other side of the barbed-wire fence. But when new arrival William moves into the cell next door, Joe’s desire for freedom quickly gives way to a desire of another kind.

Director Zeno Graton’s debut feature charts the twists and turns of passion between these two young men who thought their lives had been put on hold. With electric performances from Khalil Gharbia (Francois Ozon’s PETER VON KANT) and Julien De Saint Jean (also featured in NewFest35’s LIE WITH ME), THE LOST BOYS offers an uncompromising vision of love that will break and mend hearts in equal measure.
