The organisers of the Male Psychology Conference, in association with Hollywood director, Joseph Culp, are delighted to present this provocative new comedy/drama about "the inner life of men". The showing is free, and what’s more the director will take a brief Q&A session afterwards.

The film takes us inside the intimate dynamic of an all-male support group when they gather one morning for a ritual breakfast and their unique form of male bonding. One Sunday a month, these eight men refrain from beer and football to sit in a circle where they share their personal issues, in the noble hope of becoming a bit more evolved than their fathers. On this day, things do not go as planned when one member appears headed for a breakdown, and long-standing conflict and secrets threaten to destroy the trust between the men. The film delves frankly into themes of male identity, competition, sexuality, and grief.
