A coroner’s-office photographer must suppress his grief when he realizes the body of a badly beaten drag queen being examined is his boyfriend… A cold, stark room, two men, a dead body, and a shocking discovery: this simple and moving vignette captures a gay man’s ultimate nightmare in such a powerful way. Nicely shot visuals and editing reveal his struggle to maintain his professionalism because it’s possible his coworker doesn’t even know he’s gay - let alone the total dichotomy of this tragic situation. Beautifully heartbreaking.
