Pulse is a unique Australian speculative drama that shows a gay teenager’s hunger for love and belonging with conviction and honesty.
Olly, played by Daniel Monks who also wrote and produced the film, has a physical disability and decides that undergoing a body transplant to become a beautiful woman will solve all of his physical and romantic challenges. Convinced that the surgery will give him everything he wants, and supported by his friends and family, Olly’s change powerfully affects more than just his body.
Featuring a strong cast and very clever camera work, Pulse highlights the interplay of gender, sexuality, physicality and societal values in the human quest for love with conviction and refreshing honesty.
Pulse is a transgressive, provocative and insightful look at disability, sexuality, and identity - FilmInk
