«I set out to make a work that I needed to see while struggling with my gender. A trans work where it’s not about educating cis people, or justifying our existence or being shiny positive examples, but a real story, where the trans protagonists are complex and troubled, progressive and admirable, problematic and relatable. Where they are rebels, lovers, creators, and hot af.» – Elagoz

Seek Bromance is a trans romance situated at the end of the world. It shows a relationship between two transmasculines who met during the pandemic, who both have a history of performing extremely feminine characters but who have very different attitudes as to what masculinity can be. The theme of this collaboration became the relationship between 3 lovers, the camera being one of them. Through the deserts of Los Angeles and Vegas, far from other people, with just a car, some cash, and a supply of testosterone they expose the integral dynamics of masculinity and femininity.
