Jason Height (Sean McBride) is a hot young gay man who's recently found himself displaced on the west coast. During his many sexual exploits in Palm Springs he stumbles into a three-way relationship with a couple who appear to be on the outs after years together. Thinking that a third might be the magic bullet their relationship sorely needs, they decide to move forward as a threesome. However, they all soon learn that there is no such thing as an easy fix when it comes to love. A thoroughly modern look at gay love in the late teens, 'The Third' is a sparkling romantic drama with a twist.
From reading the synopsis I expected so much from this film and was disappointed in that the story line was patchy and as the lead characters seemed to have a drink problem I was not sure if I was watching actual events or what they thought through a drunken stupor was happening.
