Jonny is a young obsessive-compulsive white Bahamian artist who faces losing his scholarship at a local University if he does not live up to the potential that his teachers believe he has. Inspired by this challenge and wanting to get away from homophobic bullies and his alcoholic father, Jonny chooses to escape for a weekend to the small Bahamian island of Eleuthera where he meets young Romeo. Together, these two embark on a series of physical adventures that inspire Jonny to paint, but which force him to let his guard down and explore real intimacy without fear.

But things are shaken up when Romeo’s girlfriend shows up and puts an end to Jonny’s romantic dreams. Now, Jonny must choose between finally giving up on love, career, and his happiness or fearlessly moving forward with his life.

Float is a universal story about being different in a world that often demands we all be the same. It is a story of finding value in our truths and loving our loved ones unconditionally.
