When Pablo comes out as gay and declares his love for his boyfriend Francisco, the revelation hits his family and community like a bomb. And while initially determined to embrace his sexuality and his new partner, Pablo gradually starts to question whether prioritizing his own happiness above that of his wife and children is really the right choice. Jayro Bustamante’s follow-up to his beautiful debut IXCANUL is another exquisitely shot and impressively acted drama in which the main character’s inner turmoil mirrors that of Guatemalan society.
