Storyline

Matias and Jeronimo have known each other since childhood, but their friendship took a new turn during the holiday before starting high school when they both sexually awoke together. Matias's father indirectly broke up their relationship by accepting a job very far away. More than ten years later, Matias returns to his old town for carnival with his girlfriend and unexpectedly runs into Jeronimo. Feelings will slowly reappear and will reach a climax, but at what price? Written by Outplay Films/edited by statmanjeff

Matías: No. Honey, it's going to be fully packed. I'm really tired, hon.
Rochi: Oh, Mati, don't be like that. It's so hard with you and your phobias.
Matías: What? What phobias? No, hon, I'm sick of being with this many people. I can't stand it anymore.

Happy ending.....low key and sweet.
18 August 2019 | by ohlabtechguySee all my reviews

Not into boy on boy sex, but the flashbacks here served a purpose. They showed how close the two main characters had been during a part of their childhood, before one of them had to move away with his parents. The adult characters were attractive enough and likeable. Matias was the straight appearing one and the one who had wrongly chosen a straight path. But he realizes how wrong he was after he spends a fun weekend with his former pal. Acting was decent. Enjoyed the basic premise. But really....every gay movie has the characters swimming in dirty water. I can't stand swimming in dirty water.
