DEDALUS is a fiction triptych portraying community, love, and loss.
In rural Iowa, a grocery cashier watches helplessly as classmates conceal their act of sexual violence against his teenaged step-sister. Will she keep the child? A hustler tricks for food, shelter, and intimacy during a winter in New York City. A young woman takes him in, but nothing satiates his unrequited love for an older gay client. Mortality compels a father to leave his home in Los Angeles and move in with his daughter.
Jonah Greenstein's gorgeously shot feature debut laces loneliness with beauty to create a film of startling cinematic intimacy.
"An impressive debut." —Roger Walker-Dack, Queerguru
"Greenstein shows the ways in which an intimate encounter with a stranger can make all the difference." —Jose Solís, The Film Stage
