Forty-something Pablo is a scion of a staid upper-class family. Seemingly happily married to a supportive younger wife, father of two and a practising Evangelical Christian. But Pablo is on the brink of revealing a long- held secret, he is in love with another man. Encouraged by his lover Francesco, Pablo’s coming out will have intense ramifications that will reverberate beyond his own family and the wider community.

Director Jayro Bustamante’s moody and intense second feature demands to be seen on the big screen. With truly affecting visuals, performances and atmosphere, its themes of religious repression and being true to yourself regardless of the costs will reverberate long after you leave the cinema.
