In this unique surreal story set on the Peruvian seaside, a married fisherman struggles to reconcile his devotion to his male lover within his town's rigid traditions. Miguel, a handsome young fisherman, and his beautiful bride, Mariela, are about to welcome their first child. But Miguel harbours a scandalous secret. He's in love with Santiago, an artist, who is ostracized by the town because he’s gay. After a tragic accident occurs, Miguel must choose between sentencing Santiago to eternal torment or doing right by him and, in turn, revealing their relationship to Mariela—and the entire village.
