Movie Info

Matías and Jerónimo, who have a potent on-screen chemistry, have known each other since childhood. During the holidays in the Argentine wetlands of Esteros and before they begin high school, their friendship takes a new turn when they both experience their sexual awakening. However, Matías' father forces them apart when he takes a job far away. Ultimately, distance and family contempt for homosexuality leads Matías to deny his friend, and ultimately, himself.

November 29, 2016 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

The film works as a drama, as a romance and as, in fact, a biopic of Santiago itself as it comes of age and stands before the camera as a character in its own right.
