Overcome with jealousy, Raúl turns even more possessive and abusive towards Roberto and shows that his brutality can go further than Roberto might have ever imagined – perhaps even to the point of murder. In this darkly fascinating film festival hit, director José Celestino Campusano takes queer cinema in a bold new direction as he explores the destructive potential of love and jealousy.
