Synopsis

Kalel knows a thing or two about secrets. His mother has an ongoing affair with a married man. His sister had an under-age abortion .To top it all, he is the son of a priest. He grew up being told to be ashamed and apologize for sins he did not commit. Insecure about his past and upbringing, he winds up recklessly searching for love and validation from strangers he meets online. At age 15, he is diagnosed with HIV. Kalel thinks it will just be another secret that he has to keep. But Kalel’s already fragile existence comes unhinged. Without any moral compass to restrain him, he is now in danger of sliding into a life of destruction and pain.
