Big man, small ego

Fede is so overweight he hasn't left his house in ten years. Spending his time making necklaces, getting nagged on by his sister Rosaura and hanging out with his brother-in-law Ramón, he seems to have closed himself off from the world. This all changes, however, when Ramón urges him to take up photography, prompting Fede to journey to the local photo store where he meets teenage shop clerk Paolo. A tender drama with a big heart and and an unlikely trio of leads, WALKING DISTANCE is a charming portrait of male friendship.
