Synopsis

It’s 1975 and Toronto horticulture enthusiasts are buzzing with excitement; Dr. Timothy Arbutus, the famous British flower arranger, makes his Canadian début at Toronto’s O’Keefe Centre. Backstage in his dressing room, a dark drama unfolds. His devoted manservant, Fitzrooy, has just learned that he has been replaced by Larry, the hot young stage manager – and Arbutus’ latest fling. Distraught, the straitlaced Fitzrooy secretly follows the two lovers into Toronto’s gay underworld, determined to prove his love. But Fitzrooy isn’t the only one on Arbutus’s trail. A noir comedy.
