    • Synopsis
    • Juan Pablo, 16, travels to the remote family hacienda in the Andes, where his uncle, involved in a corruption scandal, has taken refuge with his wife and teenage children. It is the carnival holiday of 1999, days before the collapse of Ecuador’s banking system. There, Juan Pablo meets Juano, an enigmatic, self-assured, black-metal fan from the nearby pueblo, who opens his eyes to a new, liberating universe. As his country and family heads for the abyss, the boys’ budding friendship develops into a fragile romance, and Juan Pablo is forced to define himself against his chaotic surroundings.
