Synopsis

A gay espionage thriller, exploring themes of paranoia, sexism, sectarian infighting, and infiltration within the organized gay community. A gay man is producing a National Film Board documentary on police harassment of the gay community. The lesbian he hires to do the narration quits halfway through, accusing him of being an RCMP agent. He accuses her of the same and produces actual RCMP surveillance films to prove it.
