Anthony, a twenty-nine-year-old mixed European actor and cabin crew member, auditions for the reality TV show ‘Dream Island.’ The casting director immediately asks stereotyping questions, about his sexual orientation and consequently his taste in men. The questions become darker and more disturbing, triggering a memory of a London house party, and a traumatic event in his life.
