American Vagabond
Susanna Helke
2013 - 85 min - HD - Couleur - Finlande, Danemark

A young man leaves his small provincial town because his parents will not accept his homosexuality. In the company of his teenage lover, he heads for San Francisco, a fantastical mirage for the gay community. Yet their dreams are shattered against an inhospitable reality. And the return will be fraught with danger. A harsh and moving account which references the American literary tradition.
