The Last Seagull

Viimeinen rantaleijona

Ivan is a ‘seagull’: a male escort at a Sunny Beach resort in Bulgaria. He has been doing this for 40 years and wants to quit. He tries to connect with Russian ladies, offering to help them get visas to the EU but realises that he’s no longer credible as an escort. Ivan’s real sorrow is that his adult son in Ukraine refuses contact. Maybe now, in the spring of 2022, it might be possible to re-connect.
