Bambino and Bawa develop a connection while on a photography project in Lagos. After a heartbreaking incident, Bambino re-evaluates his feelings but ultimately chooses to end his involvement with Bawa, which leads to a tragic outcome. Apalowo tells a restrained and tender story of two men who get close in a society where same-sex sexual relations are considered taboo and are liable for prosecution. Their dance around each other unfolds slowly in concentrated and quietly beautiful images.
