About

Guy, a shy and overweight millenial, is failing in the departments of mates, dates and fun — dating apps can be cruel if you don’t look like a model. When he’s ghosted by his Romeo, he tries to follow the latest 11-step listicle to get noticed: diets, exercise regimes, and a new wardrobe… but can he resist the temptation of being someone else when the chance is literally at his fingertips?​ ​In a reality of lonely binges, dirty sheets and unattainable bodies, you have to learn the hard way that the only person you need to be is yourself.

Sometimes sexy, always real, with nakedly honest characters, GUY is an unapologetically moving portrayal of the hook-ups and downs of 21st-century dating; and a thought-provoking glimpse behind the veil of modern masculinity, male beauty standards, and unspoken prejudices within marginal communities. Tied together with a pioneering and infectiously catchy electronic score, GUY channels floor-filling EDM anthems, indie electronica,​ ​queer hip-hop, and PC Music with the lyrical charm of Sondheim, and the earworm melodies of Schwartz.

cw: racism, body image, disordered eating
