No Dogs Allowed
Since 15-year-old Gabo has known about his paedophilic tendencies, he has tried to control and hide his needs.
He confides neither to his friends nor to his mother or sister – the fear of the reactions is too great.
He finds support and a listening ear in online chat forums, where he also meets the much older Dave. However, Dave takes advantage of Gabo’s insecurity and a toxic power dynamic develops. When Dave is suddenly arrested by the police on suspicion of abusing minors, Gabo has to make a decision.
