An electrifying story about a budding young queer romance, its end, and the preciousness of just one dreamy day in between.

Seventeen-year-old Kol is on his way to the 1999 Australian DanceSport Championship with his dance partner, Ebony, and her older brother, Adam. During their road trip, Kol and Adam realize they have more in common than they'd thought. But their emergent feelings, as unexpected as they are intense, can only last one summer day. A decade later, the two meet for a bittersweet reunion.
