The Outrageous Dangers of Serving Your Country...
In just one night in Cyprus, the lives of two young men are broken and shattered forever, and all because of an illegal expression of their personalities that clashes with the draconian and bigoted policies of the Armed Forces.
SUMMARY OF CONCEPT -
A young man is sent abroad on an RAF detachment, where he meets his lover. They get caught in an act of Gross Indecency and are subjected to the most heinous interrogations. The investigation culminates in a court martial and prison for them both. Decades later the government revokes the homophobic Act which made homosexuality illegal, but it is not enough for one of the men, who commits suicide in 2014. The other one had attempted suicide shortly after the trouble in Cyprus but even though he survived, has had terrible physical and mental injuries to contend with to this day.
