"Straight A": In Japan, a gay college student with an American boyfriend must come out to his "ancestral" father
Todd Lien directs a short film “Straight A”.
In what appears to be a home in Japan, a college undergraduate boy has a rather athletic white American boyfriend, Kyle.
The boy’s father is still concerned about the family’s bloodline and has trouble accepting what is going on.
The father says he wants to be a friend of his son, like Kyle.
The dialogue between father and son is in Japanese with subtitles.
