Description

Lorenzo Vigas' first feature—and winner of the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival—tells a powerful and psychologically charged romance between two men from different worlds. 50-year-old Armando solicits young men on the streets of Caracas. When he brings young Elder back to his apartment for his usual exchange, it seems he may have chosen the wrong person—Elder not only beats him up but robs him. But Armando is drawn to him and Elder seems equally curious. Their developing push-pull relationship explores the lines between loneliness, manipulation, and unspoken personal boundaries.

"Alfredo Castro plays a closed-off middle-aged gay man who cruises the Caracas streets for young rough trade in Lorenzo Vigas' startling debut." - Hollywood Reporter
