Synopsis: When eight-year-old Oscar Madly finds out that his parents are getting divorced, he retreats into a fantasy world filled with happy memories of times with his father and tries to cope with his loneliness through conversations with his talking pet hamster, Buffy. The creative and sexually confused youngster is lost, between the brink of adulthood, dysfunctional parents and the disturbing remembrance of a tragic gay bashing he witnessed as a kid. After the departure of his childhood friend, Oscar is dragged into a romance with his coworker. The forbidden fling forces him to face his personal demons, confront his family, dreams and his true self hiding in the dark closet.
