“Seriously William, you’re eighteen and you’re gay, for Christ’s sake. You’re meant to swim against the tide. A proper gap year is all about traveling. Seeing the world. Popping your cherry. This is our chance to start living. Me and you.”
This is the story of Dave; a dad in mid-life freefall who takes his repressed, gay, teenage son William on a wild adventure to Thailand. Written by Tom Wright and directed by Rikki Beadle-Blair MBE, My Dad’s Gap Year is a wickedly funny and heartfelt story based on true events.
Gay love, straight love, trans love, buddy-love, drinking games and beer bellies. Fasten your seat-belts, it’s gonna be a mad one!
