SYNOPSIS

Fernando is on holiday with his closest friends in a beautiful country house in a chic suburb of Buenos Aires.

As in all “men only” situations, they feel free to walk around naked or half- naked, being in such intimate proximity to each other. In that context, Fernando decides to invite a newcomer, Germán, a close friend from his Taekwondo class.

 

Germán is easily accepted by the group as Fernando is so appreciated by this “clan.” But Germán has a preference that Fernando ignores, he is attracted to men. Little by little the two friends get closer and more intimate, almost on the verge of romance.

 

It is obvious that in this totally heterosexual environment, this relationship becomes a secret to hide from the others, or not…

Quote

"Marco Berger and Martín Farina, a dream team in the world of queer Argentinian cinema. Berger directed Plan B (2009), Absent (2011) and Hawaii (2013), three very different tales of gay longing. Farina made Fulboy, an unashamedly homoerotic peek into soccer’s dressing-room culture"   London Film Festival
