Tim Kirkman’s “Lazy Eye” follows Dean (Lucas Near-Verbrugghe), a graphic artist living in Los Angeles who receives an email from Alex (Aaron Costa Ganis), an old flame he hasn’t seen or heard from in 15 years. The two of them meet up at a vacation home in the desert and passionately reconnect, but over the course of a single weekend, Dean and Alex open up old wounds and reveal secrets that neither expected. As tensions flare in their sun-drenched environment, both men determine whether or not they have a future together and contemplate the numerous roads not taken.
