Storyline

Chile 1970, just before the elections bringing Allende to power: Jaime, a narcissistic 20 year old, kills out of jealousy a guy known as The Gypsy, his till-then best friend. In prison he has a definitive encounter with "the Stallion", an older man who inspires respect and holds the power behind bars. Searching for protection, Jaime develops with the man a relationship of affection and tenderness, discovers love and the need to be recognized, and later, becoming "The Prince", finally rethink his sexual identity, and the reason for the crime that took him to prison.

Total fking gut punch
13 December 2020 | by samshvjiSee all my reviews

This movie is powerful and just brings you everything from tears and heartbreak to some serious wish fulfillment. Showing people who aren't 'good' by anyone's standards, but a real insight into the way crimes come from a place of pain and feeling like you're the only one alone and not accepted.
