Synopsis

19-year-old Jose_ is a shy young man who when not working in a busy Guatemalan restaurant or tending to his demanding mother, frequently organises afternoon hotel hookups with men he finds online.
When he meets Louis, a migrant from the Caribbean coast, a romance blossoms and Jose_ begins to imagine another life outside of his cloistered and conservative background. Adopting a naturalistic style and featuring impressive performances from the mostly non-professional actors, Jose_ is a gentle portrait of a young man on the brink of crisis, hope and change.
