Ben (Matt Fifer) drifts from one casual hook-up to the next, exploring his sexuality, with encounters barely making it to the next morning. His therapist, Sophie (Cobie Smulders, How I Met Your Mother), the one constant relationship in his life.
When he meets the handsome Sam (Sheldon D. Brown) they immediately form a connection. They spend the Summer getting to know each other, their intimacy growing and their bond strengthening. Yet as cracks begin to show they realise that not only do they need to understand their differences they need to work on themselves if they are to truly let the other person in.
CICADA, the debut feature from Matt Fifer, co-written with Sheldon D. Brown, tackles the complexity of sexuality and self-discovery. Honouring the subjects with grace and uncompromising honesty.
