Young Toby spends his days exploring the backwoods surrounding his UK
country home. His imagination not only supplies adventure but also the
exciting promise of lustful embraces and kisses with the handsome field
hand. When Toby's mother, a nurse, brings home a sickly yet handsome
youth, Cymon, to recuperate, Toby finds himself drawn to the older boy.
Their friendship, awkward at first, blossoms as each offers the other
much-needed comfort. Cowboys Can Fly presents a classic story of gay
adolescence, one that is as heartbreaking as it is triumphant in spirit.
“Woods and boys were born to be together; born to share each other’s unquestionable beauty. A woods is that special place where a boy’s quest to be spiritually free is born, a place of magic and mystery, a wonderful place to fall in love.” --Ken Smith.
