Synopsis

Developed by the Canadian government as a series of tests to identify homosexuals, "the fruit machine" was just one of the many homophobic mechanisms used to fire "fruity" civil servants in the 1950s . In this modern retelling, Mead mixes fact and fiction and tells the behind-the-scene story of his creator, Dr. F.R. Wake, who might have had a few secrets on his own.
