A young male prostitute (played by Luke Pasqualino) is hired by Jonathan, a lonely middle-aged man, to be his companion on a road trip from San Francisco to the Grand Canyon.
Jonathan creates a role for the escort to play for the duration of the trip: “Brandon.” Eager to leave his own past behind, the escort accepts the role and they set off on their drive. “Brandon” quickly comes to realize he’s playing a pivotal part of Jonathan’s desire to relive his past.
“Brandon” and Jonathan — two damaged souls driving to the Grand Canyon, one trying to remember his past; the other trying to forget. RETAKE is an exploration of love, loss, identity, and the delicate balance of moving toward an uncertain future.
