In the Flesh is a 1998 crime drama directed by Ben Taylor. The film is set in Atlanta, Georgia, and focuses on a detective, Philip Kirsch (Ed Corbin), an undercover police officer investigating drug trafficking at a gay bar, The Blue Boy, which is also a brothel. Oliver Beck (Dane Ritter) is a self-hating, friendless, gay college student and hustler who is enjoying the crowd at the bar. Oliver's life is wracked with feelings of guilt formed by the death of his childhood friend and a drug addicted, co-dependent sister. The two strangers lives collide when Oliver witnesses a crime and turns to Philip for help. Oliver fears his life may be at risk, and because of this he cannot resume his normal work schedule or go home. Philip is confused when Oliver turns to him, but reluctantly agrees to help him. When people come looking for Oliver, it is up to Philip to decide what happens to him.
