Rafael Casal's THE LIMP is a contemporary examination of the relationship between love and male identity, told by three components of the psyche in conversation with each other and themselves. Set in a 20-something's living room minutes before a date arrives, a conversation between three roommates snowballs into a hilarious, philosophical and violent portrayal of how men of the Millennial generation experience the big L word and all that surrounds it.
