Secret Told

No. I don't know the exact nature of the secret. What I do know is that it was passed to a blue collar guy who built up a small construction firm into an impressive business empire, and it was told by a mediocre lawyer with political aspirations who came across the information while he was doing some work for the city council. The meeting seemed accidental but was not, and it occurred between the locker room and showers at the local private golf club. The red-headed dude is nude because he has nothing to hide while the lawyer is jock-strapped because he is holding something back. They are not friends. Casual acquaintances who've never even teed-off together.  Both are recent members and "tolerated" by the established guys at the club. I could go on about their marriages, their pasts, the works... but I don't know if any of it is at all relevant. The viewer can wonder, speculate, envision almost anything about the motives and possibilities. What do you think is going on? This isn't a piece where everyone's role is clearly defined. That's why the background is indistinct and almost confusing. The focus is on the secret and it's possible ramifications.
