Summary
Deep in the lush river jungles of Argentina, Alvaro lives a solitary existence fishing and harvesting reeds. What sets him apart from the rest of his village is that he is gay. There are no other gay men in his world, his only means of expression is with the occasional outsider who passes through. Most of these men come via the river taxi El Len,̤ who's captain. El Turu is a mean man with a homophobic streak and a secret. Attitudes begin to change when illegal loggers appear in the jungle and El Turu accuses Alvaro of aiding them. Then again El Turu's attitude seemed to have already changed since he began watching Alvaro more closely in the shower. This is a world where there are no signs of gay life, just men as men. These two men must battle each other over land and respect. Alvaro must live his life as he does, going from one encounter to the next. El Turu works to hide his secret and earn his crew's respect. Santigo Otheguy's feature film is ground breaking by Argentinean standards. Never before has such an beautiful and erotic film been made about men who openly share thier feelings, both mental and physical. A must not just for gay audiences, but for all film buffs alike
