Mysterious Skin (2004) (DVD)
"The summer I was 8 years old, five hours disappeared from my life. Five hours... lost... gone without a trace"
Ten years later, Brian Lackey is still tormented by the black hole in his life - the five missing hours that have left him convinced he was abducted by aliens. In the same small Kansas town, another teen has no such worries. A hustler wise beyond his years, he has only one thing on his mind; sex and the path his urges are going to take. Searching for answers, both boys separately head for New York City, where a twist of fate brings them together to realise that their future happiness lies in exorcising the collective demons of their past.
