At a prestigious Catholic boys school in Melbourne in the seventies, Tim Conigrave and John Caleo fell madly in love. Their passionate, tempestuous, operatic romance lasted for sixteen years, facing disapproval, temptation, separation, and the looming shadow of the Grim Reaper. Their star crossed relationship was immortalized in Timothy Conigrave’s memoir Holding the Man, and has been adapted for stage and screen. This is the true story of how Romeo met Romeo and what happened ever after.
