Developed through a series of interviews and meetings with victims of Conversion Therapy, 'A Particular Friend' tells the story of Matthew, a priest and CT practitioner at a remote rehab centre for gay priests in Northern Ireland. With his judgement marred by a lifetime of sexual shaming and internalised homophobia, Matthew believes that he is helping his fellow priests. But when he discovers a potential relationship between two of the inmates, Matthew realises that perhaps the practice is much more harmful than good and there are better ways for him to choose the path of compassion and understanding. Behind the striking religious imagery and repressed sexuality, 'A Particular Friend' is the story of one man’s desire to be good and his journey to discover how.
