Confrontation is thus avoided by both of them, and has been for some time. Though he fights going to Scotland for the funeral, Tom learns how to inhale when he meets an older gay man in Glasgow. Tom: Yeah.
He is attracted by his similarity to his former lover and just wants to spend time with him in the futile attempt to recreate parts of his past. It was personally disturbing for me to see some of the young ladies taking liberties with their legs. What becomes clear to the audience at this juncture but is still not known to the characters is that all the different strands of the plot run together in Glasgow.
From there, it became my challenge to give them a history and life.
