    • Synopsis
    • A son that needs to tell his father about his sexual preferences. A father that expects his son to show the manhood he claims to have. A terrace, an asado, and the guests about to arrive. “Tigers” are strong and frightening, and they don’t let their children define themselves.“Hijo ‘e tigre” (son of a tiger) is a colloquial expression used by a father to show that he is proud of his son because he resembles him; in general, in relation to an action or behavior that gets a man closer to the picture o f the typical “Argentine macho”. The film poses a criticism to that type of sexism, still present
      in our society, despite the improvements in terms of gender equality.
