New York City screenwriter Daniel can't stand the sight of himself. He hasn't been able to write in months, his boyfriend Thomas might have to return to Germany because of visa problems, and spending hours online doing film-research on bareback sex is getting him nowhere. To help out with Thomas' visa fees Daniel takes a job with his family's Israeli security company in New Jersey, where he is forced to confront his father's definitive and stifling views on Jewish survival. But when a corporate takeover threatens to rob Daniel's father of his life's work Daniel must reckon with his own narrative about what it means to be safe. Fusing virtuosic object manipulation, sweeping cinematic storytelling, and a hypnotic score SeXcurity is a boldly physical and provocative investigation into the conundrum of identity.
