EKAJ is a love story between two drifters, a naive teenager and a hustler. Ekaj meets Mecca who takes him under his care, even though Mecca has AIDS and multiple problems of his own. He is high all day, but still manages to be the only voice of reason in Ekaj’s hopeless world. They cruise the city together looking for money and places to stay. Although Ekaj makes some money as a prostitute, he finds himself discarded, and lacking what it takes to survive in the city. Their mutual loneliness leads to genuine friendship.
This film is set to premier in Charlotte North Carolina, Thessaloniki, Greece, Leeds, United Kingdom and Guam USA.
