A 30 years old, Phyo, Burmese gay guy who newly arrived in Paris and is preparing some immigration procedure. He tries to get over the trauma of being sexually abused by looking for intimacy.
When I was in secondary school, I was always afraid to go to school toilet alone. My school mates always followed me with a nice talk but when no one is around, they started to humiliate me. They tied me up, grabbed my waist from behind and started simulating anal sex and forced me to do oral sex. This situation put me in a deep stress and uncomfortable situation at my teenage. The trauma left me to be difficult to be in love someone or never get intimacy with someone. Whenever I am in a love mood, this horrible memory appears in my head. I always think that the strange feeling that no one would understand me.
I always wonder if I am abroad and I will be explore my sexual desire as I wish. But when I arrived to Paris, I could not get over all the trauma. All the situation that I’m facing right now is I feel alone as a creature who migrated to another country where I never feel I belong to.
I want to make this story almost like a true story from my life with my observation of migrant people who are living in Paris. It's a story of a guy who has trauma in his past and begins to explore his sexuality in a new environment.
