The Torch Forsaken
A young man waits for his lover under the shade of an ancient sprawling tree as the sun rises over Brazil. It is the end of summer. The earth is baked. Heat rises from the burnt cane fields as dawn floods the land. Dimas Cabral and Alanyo Valermo are cane cutters in southern Brazil. Both in the mid-twenties, the men have spent their adult lives in "debt bondage" to a large sugarcane plantation located several hundred miles from Sao Paolo. The living conditions are despicable. The working conditions are worse. Their "wages" never reach their own hands. The money their long, taxing hours earn goes directly into the plantation boss's hands, a man who legally claims that the young workers' families owe him a large financial debt. The fact that this is a lie doesn't matter when there is no proof of the truth. Dimas and Alanyo's time is short and there are ears everywhere. Their love must be made silently and fast. As sweat soaks their bodies and orgasms rock their lost souls, the young men allow themselves one minute longer just to hold on to each other, to hold on to the only good thing in their lives... This is their story.
