Synopsis


The twenty-first century.


Being gay is supposedly more integrated than ever.


Marriage is legal, parenthood is possible and #LoveWins is trending on twitter.


The time has arrived to settle down with the man you love for a life of lasting companionship.


But in a world where sex is readily available, and with a history of sexual freedom; what does it mean to be in a gay relationship in the modern age?


And why are so many gay men still lonely?


Circa explores the blurred identity of the gay relationship in the modern age.


Following the story of one man's romantic life, we are taken through the different relationships and encounters he experiences over a period of thirty years.


Joining him through the joys and pitfalls of trying to find love and fulfilment as a gay man.
