Synopsis: It’s been 5 months, 1 week and 3 days since all the women left, but have the men learnt anything in that time? While three bemused young men attend a support group to try to make sense of the situation, a young mother is forced into making the hardest decision she has ever had to make. Gone touches upon lots of social topics concerning masculinity, femininity, race and urban upbringing.
