An imposing landscape of vast forests, rivers, and fog frames director Omar Zuniga Hidalgo’s intimate Chilean romance. Fleeing a hostile home life, gay architecture student Lucas visits his sister in remote South Chile. Amidst the endless fog of the small fishing town, Lucas meets Antonio, a boatswain on a local fishing boat. Despite their vastly different backgrounds, the two young men find themselves drawn into an intense and beautiful romance. However, Lucas and Antonio’s passion may be snuffed out by the hostilities of the conservative town and its inhabitants. A rarity in Chilean and Latin American cinema, this film is an unflinchingly gay celebration of bodies in the heat of forbidden love.
