Nestor

Everyone has a breaking point….

 

Towards the end of the 20th Century, with no sign of a let up in the unrelenting and

increasingly aggressive persecution of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people

across the world, a small faction of forward thinkers quietly pulls away from

mainstream society, in the hope of creating a safe haven, away from hatred and

prejudice.

 

What starts as a tiny community on an island off the coast of Brazil soon takes on a

life of its own, and Nestor is born. People craving safety, equality and acceptance

flock to Nestor in their thousands, and the island is soon established as a young

nation, with its own laws, government, and entirely new set of unique, challenging,

and sometimes terrifying problems of its own…

 

Inspired by the short story 'NOS', by renowned author Zeca Fonseca, ‘Nestor’

examines one possible solution to the ongoing, and arguably worsening blight of

homophobia in the 21st Century.
