Synopsis


Star Man tells the story of a young man, Ben (Jack Matthew), battling to overcome the hold of a drug addiction, while a ghost from his past seeks to destroy his future.


As his partner Tony (Harry Edwin) and estranged mother Dionne (Kim Tatum) desperately try to help Ben, fearless drag queen and tour-de-force Kennedy Carmichael (Neil Summerville) forces the troubled family to confront unsaid truths and heal the wounds of the past.


Background, advisory warnings


Age suitability: 18+


The online streaming of Star Man is in support of akt, formerly known as the Albert Kennedy Trust.


As a charity tackling LGBTQ+ youth homelessness, akt saw a substantial spike in young people seeking help, as national lockdowns increased the numbers of those fleeing dangerous domestic situations, facing unemployment, rent arrears and financial instability.


50% of the profits from Star Man will go to akt to fund their critical work.
