Brothers Jonas and Kevin Kierkowzki struggle to navigate their grief over the too-early death of their younger brother. Jonas has become emotionally isolated and cold, while Kevin takes the opposite route, chaotic and sometimes self-destructive. The brothers’ mutual boyfriend, Benjamin, provides stability for them both.



The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
