Many of us have our stories to tell. For me this is very close for I too followed this path in my life. I got married very young to a wonderful girl. But it wasn’t right and after 3 years we parted. We are still the dearest of friends. Life goes by so fast. I realize how lucky I have been . Andrew and I are together now 41 years. We have always lived as we are, proud and out. Its been quite ride. I hope you enjoy my little film.

Man in an Orange Shirt features two separate yet interwoven stories: Part 1 tells of the obstacles that Western society is putting into the love relationship of the two veterans Michael and Thomas in the immediate post-war period. Part 2 describes the trials and tribulations of 21st century partnerships, using the example of Michael’s grandson Adam. The stories are linked by Flora, as Michael’s grieving wife and Adam’s grandmother, whose unrequited love for Michael and conservative education results in a hateful response to Adam’s coming-out.
