    • Synopsis
    • Bohemian Jess has secrets to hide from his nosy, middle-class parents. James feels trapped living with his domineering single mother. After meeting online and having a brief hook-up, Jess is ready to move on to his next conquest, but James isn't satisfied with the brief encounter and he follows Jess home. As the pair form a shaky bond, the two young men decide to escape their families and embark on a spontaneous road trip across rural Argentina to reunite with Jess' estranged brother.
