Diego, a successful fashion photographer in Caracas, is in a longtime and loving relationship with his partner Fabrizio, an OB/GYN physician who would like to settle down. Fabrizio proposes that Diego move in with him to “formalize” their relationship. While considering Fabrizio’s offer, Diego learns that his son, Armando, a teenager who lives in Spain with his mother and whom he hasn’t seen in five years, will be coming to live with him for a short time.
Shortly after Armando’s arrival, Fabrizio is the victim of a horrific hate crime that leaves him in a coma. While coping with anger and grief, Diego must strive to build a relationship with his estranged son, who harbors deep anger at being abandoned by his father. Now, they both must learn to accept one another: Armando to the unknown, homosexual world of his father, and Diego to the closed attitude of his teenage son.
Fueled by a strong script, wonderful performances, and a great cast of supporting characters, this wonderful film tackles tough issues with charm and grace.
Be advised: This film contains graphic scenes of homophobic violence.
