    • Synopsis
    • Two couples decide to escape the city for a relaxing spring weekend. Toshiro and Helena, a married couple with two adolescent daughters, who live a seemingly perfect middle-class life in Lima; and their friends Felipe and Iris, a younger couple enjoying life freely in their early 30s. The four of them enjoy the time at a country estate run by Sol and Miguel, lovers and hippies at heart. The weekend begins with laughter and camraderie. But as the sun sets on the second night, untold desires and hidden agendas are revealed, launching both urban pairs into crisis. Decisions must be made and voices must be heard in this story of the incredible complexity of love in its many forms.
