Priča sa Bahamskih ostrva u kojoj mladi umjetnik Johny zarobljen u strahu od sopstvene homoseksualnosti pokusava da pronađe inspiraciju za svoj rad. Upoznajeje veselog i opuštenog lokalnog momka Romea sa kojim ostvaruje prijateljstvo koje prevazilazi sve što je očekivao. Razočarenje nastaje kada Johny napokon uspije da pobjedi svoj strah i suoči se sa istim problemom koji proganja Romea.
Romeo ipak na kraju shvaća da je život na dva kolosjeka težak koliko i bježanje od sopstvene seksualnosti.

Ova priča se uklapa u svaku homofobičnu sredinu, pa i u ovu našu balkansku. Podsjetila me na nedavnu posetu kod rodbine kadame je jedan rođak pitao kada ću da se ženim i imam li koju da dovedem doma. Na momenat sam se začudio pitanju ali sam ladno odgovorio da kada nisam do sada to uradio, teško da može očekivati da će se tako nešto desiti. Vidio sam da me je razumio šta sam htio reći. Svako bira svoj put, on je odselio u inostranstvo i živi u lažnom braku, ja ostao ođe i sa dva kolosijeka prešao u jedan. Mada i dalje krijem jedan dio sebe, jasno je da svako dobio onaj dio koji ga se dotiče.

The story of Float is set against the backdrop of the homophobic climate in the Caribbean, a world where no LGBT stories are celebrated.

Jonny is a young obsessive-compulsive white Bahamian artist who faces loosing his scholarship at a local University if he does not live up to the potential that his teachers believe he has. Inspired by this challenge and wanting to get away from homophobic bullies and his alcoholic father, Jonny chooses to escape for a weekend to the under-populated and dramatic Bahamian island of Eleuthera where by accident he meets a young man by the name of Romeo. Together these two embark on a series of physical adventures that inspire Jonny to paint but which force him to let his guard down and explore real intimacy without fear. However things are shaken up when Romeo’s girlfriend shows up and puts an end to Jonny’s romantic dreams. Jonny must choose between finally giving up on love, career and his happiness or fearlessly moving forward with his life.
Float is not just a gay love story but a universal story – a story about being different in a world that wants us to all be the same. It is a story of finding value in our truths and loving our loved ones unconditionally.
