You Are Not Alone - Helin Gungoren

Gay porn, sex, masturbation and catholic school. When Tom, Virgil, and April, three friends at St.Eustace Catholic School, discover secrets about each other, their personal and academic lives start to spiral. Tom, a stubborn and gay student, faces the threat of being abandoned by the people in his life. Virgil and April struggle with love, sex and jealousy in the boundaries of their Catholic boarding school. In the next few days, the lives of these three friends deteriorate around them. Isolated, the effects of many strained relationships ask the question, “What does it mean to be alone?”
