I had been working at a university and noticed the interaction between the students. College aged people generally make lifelong friendships. The people I was friends with then, are still my closest friends.
I also noticed the sometimes sexual tension between the men. Sexual exploration being a big part of understanding who you really are, and some of the boys added that to their higher learning.
In Private Security, Ryan, takes a job as a warehouse security guard. He uses the quite time to study for upcoming exams. His best friend, Justin, has quite school and Ryan misses him terribly. Misses him to the point that he is beginning to wonder if he is in love with Justin.
Justin feels the same about Ryan and reveals this when he turned to crime and breaks into the same warehouse Ryan is working and they show one another how much they misses one another.
