María, a young student of Fine Arts, decides to spend a weekend with Julio, her partner, in the house of her parents’ town. Once there, the young woman will have to face a reality already forgotten. The solid mentality of her family means that practically nothing has changed in the life of his brother Hugo and his father, Arturo.
A tale of a man coming back to his troubled home-town becomes a meditation on the queer body and the geography of identity. By dislocating the narrative, this neo-noir film interrogates contemporary colonial relationships and troubles the filmmaker’s relationship to ‘the West’.
