"Present day, Ocho (Barberni), an Argentinian poet living in New York, visits Barcelona and stays in an Airbnb apartment, hooks up with a local guy named Javi (Pujol), it all starts like Andrew Haigh's WEEKEND (2011), sex first, conversation later. During a later getting-to-know-you chat-up under the city's purple afterglow, we are told, Ocho has recently broken up with his boyfriend of 20 years, Javi is married with his husband, they are in an open relationship and together have a toddler daughter, and Ocho is caught off guard when Javi mentions that they have met 20 years ago."
