'Gutter Boys' is a twisted tale of steamy gay sex and unrequited love in Lower Manhattan in the early 1980s. Filled with scenes of humorous debauchery and explicitly depicted anonymous sex, this wanton outing portrays a carnal world of orgiastic delights that may never exist again. Jeremy, a shy 19-year-old, falls madly in love with Colin, a disturbed yet brilliant older hustler. Though Colin rejects Jeremy as a lover, he takes him on as a protege, introducing him to the hilariously depraved world of new wave nightclubs and gay bars in the days before AIDS and the war on drugs. Innocent Jeremy, protected by the guardian spirits of his beloved dead grandmothers - one a fiery Jewish socialist, the other a proper British matron - becomes increasingly unstable under the strain of his unanswered devotion. When Jeremy finally snaps, he reaches an understanding with Colin that he never anticipated.
