Synopsis by Bhob Stewart
Peruvian director Francisco J. Lomvbardi made this Spanish-Peruvian drama adapted from Jaime Bayly's novel about life in Lima as seen by an upper-class homosexual youth. Sensitive Joaquin, caught between his overprotective, religious mother (Carmen Elias) and his macho father (Hernan Romero), leaves home to study law. A romance ripens between Joaquin and college student Alejandra (Lucia Jimenez). Her friend Rocio (Lita Baluarte) is scheduled to marry secretly gay Gonzalo (Christian Meier). Joaquin begins a series of trysts with Gonzalo, eventually leaving Alejandra, dropping out of law school, and turning to drugs and sex with wealthy Alfonso (Giovanni Ciccia) before departing for Miami. Shown at the 1998 San Sebastian Film Festival.
