Paolo, a young gay Latin American immigrant who lives in New York, travels back to his native country, Peru. After eight years of absence, he now feels ready to face a society which might now accept him, and search for the father who left his family when he was only a child.
Paolo Reategui lives a successful, exciting life as an openly gay man in New York, but his contentment is tainted by old memories of rejection and loss, and wont be complete until he reconciles with his origins. This is the story of his first journey back home after eight years away from Peru. A week before the trip, Paolo decides he is also going to look for his father, who vanished from his life when he was only a child, in an effort to get all the pieces of his life together for once and for all.
Social exploration meets personal drama in this new film by Andrea Franco Batievsky, portraying the way both society and individuals slowly evolve into their real, unbiased selves. Poignant and cathartic, this visit to Paolo's past reflects the inward journey of self-acceptance and determination, and the importance of family and roots.
