Keep the Lights On chronicles the emotionally and sexually charged journey through the love, friendship, and addiction of two men in New York City. Documentary filmmaker, Erik (acclaimed Danish actor Thure Lindhardt in his first leading role in a U.S. film), and closeted lawyer, Paul (Zachary Booth, Damages) meet through a casual encounter, but they find a deeper connection and become a couple. Individually and together, they are risk takers—compulsive, and fueled by drugs and sex. In an almost decade-long relationship defined by highs, lows, and dysfunctional patterns, Erik struggles to negotiate his own boundaries and dignity while being true to himself.
