Aussie hottie Matt Levett delivers a revelatory performance in this acclaimed drama.
Len (Levett) is a "Surf Lifesaving" champion, a legend in his cloistered surf club - just like his father. When the younger, faster and fitter Phil (Jack Matthews) arrives at the club, Len's legendary status starts to crumble... then Len sees Phil enjoying the company of another man. Phil, it seems, is gay. After their annual awards dinner, Len finds him in the locker room and violently attacks him. To Len's surprise, Phil refuses to tell anyone about the beating. When Phil wins the annual competition, Len's defeat becomes final. Looking for revenge, Len gets Phil drunk and subjects him to a series of humiliating acts. But the hatefulness also forces Len to come face to face with a fundamental question: can he accept the truth about his own sexuality?
