20-year-old soccer player Will is on his buck’s night when, handcuffed to a lamppost, he is rescued by the handsome and older Michael. The attraction between the two men is immediate and the two end up back at Michael’s lavish apartment. Once there they find themselves drawn together further as they begin to explore their sexual limits and open up about their lives. Testing the boundaries of their one-night stand, they start to contemplate a future together.
