Harry is a 23-year-old former boy band idol who is watching his younger brother Max, 16, follow in his footsteps. Harry has detoured on his way to a Japanese concert tour to escort Max on a long-promised camping adventure.

I found this movie totally unbelievable almost from the start. Even if you can get past the rather repellent idea of two brothers lusting after each other, the characters just don't ring true. The dialogue is stilted. Their motivations are impossible to divine and they repeatedly do things that just don't make sense. The relationships are truly a mystery -- why certain characters sleep with other characters, for example. I can't tell you how many times I said to myself, "There's just no WAY!" Frankly, I'm amazed this even got produced.
That said, I thought the cast did a reasonably good job with what they were given -- particularly Bryce Johnson.
