Freddie is a gay man who writes gritty psychological thrillers and refuses to compromise his storytelling approach for the sake of representation or political correctness.

However, due to rising public criticism that his stories are inherently problematic, Freddie cracks under his publisher’s pressure and hires a young sensitivity reader named Ben to keep him in check.

Write-off is a comedy-drama exploring the conflicting beliefs and biases of two equally stubborn gay men from very different generations.
