Jess y James are two young men who share a brief sexual encounter and go out on a trip through the Argentine pampas to meet Jess’ brother. On the way, they will face unexpected events and join a three-way with another man. 

Life without fantasy is pointless. And Giralt uses this statement as the basis of his romantic fable about an escape towards freedom (sexual, identitary or playful). Boys just want to have fun; they don’t want to remain tied to the chains of the world of labor, of appearances, of expectations. They are queer cowboys inhabiting their own private road movie, their rural rebirth, where the city involves routines, hideouts and simulations. The country, with its endless green plains, is an invitation to sensuality, to touching each other without reservations, to leaving behind stale bonds that are more tied to the past than to the erotic urgency of the present. Youth that’s pure desire, like the film itself, which joyously exhibits total empathy towards their tender rebelliousness. GS
