James spends the summer with relatives in the country. When he discovers his desires for a local man are reciprocated, a hidden side to the village is revealed to him. The local men indulge secret desires in a deserted barn and James' relatives have their own hidden pleasures.
The year is 1924. James Cardell has just left school and is preparing for Oxford. However, before the strict routine of university life begins, he is allowed to spend the summer holidays with his cousins in a tiny village in the Kent countryside. There he can pursue his frowned-upon love for painting, and begin to explore his secret obsession with the male physique. Through his cousin's guidance and the mysterious activities of the village lads, James comes to discover the pleasures of his forbidden impulses. There is one boy in particular whom he longs to possess - the beautiful, muscular Gabriel. Before long, they both find themselves entwined within a web of youthful folly and dark erotic initiation.
