Two men navigate their tricky relationship during lockdown in the intimate indie drama Nana’s Boys

From director Ashton Pina, Nana’s Boys is sensitive, vulnerable New York story that explores the relationship of two Black gay men.

On the morning of his 30th birthday, Amari (David J. Cork) is struggling internally. Without a career or sense of purpose in his life, Amari knows it’s time to make some decisions, especially because his long-term partner Q (Jared Wayne Gladly) has seemingly got everything figured out. Not only is Q on track to become the youngest partner at his law firm, he’s also found time to plan an elaborate soiree to celebrate both his promotion and Amari’s birthday.

The day takes a turn when an explosion places New York City in a mandatory lockdown and Amari and Q are forced to remain in their apartment until further notice. While they wait it out, they grapple with the fragility of their partnership, the memories and unexpressed feelings that could shatter them forever or help to finally heal their wounds.

Nana’s Boys is an insightful, complex, sensual and moving of one gay couple who are teetering on the brink.
