Synopsis

After affluent family man Pablo is outed as gay, he is spurned by his evangelical Christian family and fired from his job. Just as he is beginning to pick up the pieces and build a new life with lover Francisco, his devout wife demands he undergo conversion therapy—or she will deny him contact with their children. This heartrending drama gives voice to Pablo’s plight as it examines the precarious intersections between faith, responsibility, and identity.

“Exquisite… Tremors is a quietly powerful film buoyed by Olyslager’s remarkable performance.”
-San Francisco Bay Times
