‘Painfully Beautiful’ takes us into the world of a husband and father who – since a young age – realises he is not only attracted to women, but even more so to boys. Mesmerised by their beauty, he allows himself to observe them secretly in daily life. But under the weight of 40 years of suppressing his sexual urges, we find a man tired of hiding from society out of fear of being labelled a monster.
