15-year-old Ezéquiel tries his best to make connections with the boys at school, only to find out time and time again that they are attracted to girls. One afternoon he spots handsome skater boy Mono and the pair strike up a conversation. As the relationship between them develops, Ezéquiel thinks he may have finally found what he was looking for. But as Mono’s motives become increasingly uncertain, Ezéquiel finds himself caught up in a dangerous situation. Having previously thrilled audiences with sexy stories of burgeoning male desire such as Taekwondo and The Blond One, Marco Berger veers into altogether darker territory here with a provocative and challenging exploration of abuse and consent. This is bold and confrontational filmmaking, often difficult to watch, but impossible to forget.
Please note, this film contains themes of sexual abuse.
