Gay single father Santiago has reached a tipping point in his life. Reeling from a bitter breakup, Santiago is also facing the impending departure of his daughter Laila, with whom he shares a close yet emotionally charged relationship. As the fear of being alone threatens to swallow him whole, his behavior becomes increasingly erratic. Over the course of a chaotic summer divided between Argentina and Brazil, Santiago must learn to let go of Laila so each can find their own freedoms. Drawing complex, empathetic characters and employing unaffected dialogue, this emotionally affecting drama  is a story about the intense longing to love and be loved.
