Blond Gabriel has just become roommates with his work colleague, Juan. The shy and quiet Gabo spends most of his free time at home, so he is well aware of the women who leave Juan's room. However, the charismatic hunk Juan still attracts him, and it seems it might be reciprocal. This intimate insight into the everyday reality of a passionate affair from the suburbs of Buenos Aires is the latest film by a regular on the queer festival scene, Marco Berger.
