His lover Arnie (Ryan Trout) the more dominant partner of the two tries his best to talk Peter into staying. His main argument is that he shouldn’t be fighting to support a country/system that would never accept them as they are. Their liaison may have been new, but it is obvious from the conversation that there was obviously a deep connection with the two men already.
This very touching movie shows how tough saying goodbye between two boys has always been tough throughout time . Particularly at that time when so many LGBTQ men and women were about to lose their young lives never having ever been able to come out of the closet and be their true selves.
