Here We Are is a film about the choices we make and the chances we take; from the abjection of telemarketing work to romantic liberation amid nature, the film takes us through one bittersweet morning in the lives of two gay men. Desperate for employment, college grad Parv has taken a job at the shady firm Sales Solutions, and on his first day of work, he finds he has to weigh his pride against a paycheck. Elsewhere in the city, Raymond is mourning the loss of a lover and wondering what he’ll do to get through the day. Both men’s decisions lead them to the trails of Stanley Park, where each will find a warm and willing companion in the other…
Indo-Canadian male, 20-25
Parv is smart, confident and easygoing; he thinks these traits will make him a good fit for telemarketing, but he’s wrong. “Masculine” in appearance and affect, Parv is, at heart, deeply romantic and affectionate.
Any ethnicity, sixties
Raymond is a man in mourning. He has a sad and resigned disposition, but also a sense of humour and, despite the recent loss of a partner, an openness to love.
Caucasian, mid- to late-forties
Lance is outgoing and slick–but not as slick as he thinks he is. He tries to conceal his authoritarianism with a laid-back style of speech, but it reveals itself nonetheless.
Any ethnicity, sixties
World-weary and wised-up, the Security Guard takes the tedium of his job lightly and with a sense of humour. He’s a warm and friendly conversationalist.
