By day, he is a primary school teacher, entrusted with passing on knowledge and a sense of social values. By night, he is a dedicated cruiser in London’s gay underground. He is not being forced into a secret life of remorseful sin in order to survive in a homophobic society… he just loves it! This is a vocation, a perfectly valid lifestyle, and the source of much excitement and pleasure… so what’s the problem? His best friend --a divorced mum with a kid, who is also treading her own path--, is doing her best to understand his choices… but what will happen when his students confront him in class and demand answers? This is Taxi Zum Klo without the sex. A mesmerizing, courageous film, which refuses to spare us the chill of an army of loveless hunters.
