Thirty-something New Yorker Ben (Matthew Fifer) is stuck in life - between meaningless hook-ups and awkward sessions with his free- spirited therapist, Sophie (Cobie Smulders, How I Met Your Mother).
Things change when he meets Sam (Sheldon D Brown), a handsome stranger with whom he forms an immediate connection. They spend the summer getting to know each other. Yet as they get closer the cracks begin to show. They begin to realise that they need to work on themselves if they are to truly let the other person in. Cicada tackles the complexity of sexuality and self-discovery.
