Missing Tonto is a modern day fairy tale about a sweet and sheltered gay man named SIMON who goes to Paris in order to “find that thing he’s been missing all of his life”. But when he finds it, in the form of a Parisian Bouquinist named PHILIPE, it doesn’t quite look the way he had imagined. This leads him to struggle with his dream of Prince Charming versus the reality of his personal demons. Ultimately he learns that you can’t just wish for your dream to come true, you have to work for it.
