GOLDFISH is Darius's debut coming-of-age British East Asian feature film.
Everyone is having sex except Vinnie. But when Vinnie meets the perfect guy, it's sex that gets in the way.
The film follows the journey of Vinnie, a 19-year-old on a quest to unearth his true identity as he courageously confronts the complex depths of his early teenage years, navigating a sea of anxieties and insecurities that set him apart from the crowd. Faced with the reality of being unable to forge a sexual connection with those who captivate his heart, Vinnie's soul yearns for acceptance and understanding. When Vinnie crosses paths with Ryan, they embark on a blossoming romantic relationship. Everything seems to be going well until Ryan initiates sex one night and both are thrust into a profound journey of self-discovery, challenging them to reevaluate every aspect of their relationship. In the pursuit of belonging and self-acceptance, they must learn to rewrite the rules of love.
