In this coming-of-age dramedy shot on 16mm and based on the director’s life, a misanthropic gay artist packs up and moves out of his family’s garage in Indiana and heads to Brooklyn. Unable to sustain himself or any relationships in his new town, he turns to babysitting where he finds hope and self-discipline through his friendship with sensitive 6-year-old Milo. He also sparks a friendship with the adult superhero 'Leather-Man' who is conjured from a psychedelic cupcake. A little surreal and a whole lot of fun, Cubby is true indie gem.
