Synopsis

Argentinean drama exploring the developing tension between a 16-year-old boy and the swimming instructor he has a crush on. Like most teenagers, Martin (Javier De Pietro) is easily overwhelmed by the power of his own emotions. The sense of love he feels for his swimming instructor, Sebastian (Carlos Echevarria), is so strong that the boy feigns an injury in order to spend the night at Sebastian's house. The plan is dangerous to Sebastian - particularly given that Martin's scheme does not include letting his parents know that he is safe. When Sebastian discovers that the boy's mother and father spent the entire night searching for their son, a sequence of events is triggered that poses a grave threat to both the instructor and his pupil.
