Oscar's childhood has been marked by two distinct episodes: his parents’ separation and the witnessing of a traumatic hate crime, which led him to suppress his emerging sexuality. Today, the lone teenager is haunted by bloody fantasies and his only comfort is to watch the unique wisdom of Buffy, his pet hamster. When the line between fantasy and reality becomes blurred, the friendship with a beautiful - and tattooed - coworker gives Oscar confidence to recover his identity. Best Feature Film at the Canadian 2015 Toronto Film Festival.
