G Flat (Director: Peter Darney)
84-year-old cellist Ceri has lost his husband to cancer and his ability to play due to a debilitating stroke. His dull life is spent in solitude, save for the interruptions of caregivers and the solace of his iPad. Seizing the opportunity that a nighttime staff shortage brings; he uses Grindr to invite a 20-year-old rent-boy named Lestyn to visit. To Ceri’s surprise, Lestyn is a violinist at a nearby conservatoire who is supporting himself through sex work. An appreciation of contemporary orchestral music instantly bonds them, but when it’s time to get down to business, we find Ceri was looking for quite a unique experience than the one that Lestyn had expected to provide.

But hostility and distrust are never far away, and Del is forced to question how she can really help Sami when she is just as lost herself.
