As Magdalena's 15th birthday approaches, her simple, blissful life is complicated by the discovery that she's pregnant. Kicked out of her house, she finds a new family with her great-granduncle and gay cousin.
After thousands of dates, Cris settled down, met Erik and found love. The two have been together for months now and their relationship is beginning to show signs of falling apart. Cris is constantly wondering over Erik's long work hours and time spent away from home. Doubt has entered their relationship.
SO much going on, it gets confusing. LGBT love story.
It's a great early try for director Cris Pablo, but there's SO much (too much) going on here. There are too many subplots, and many many long, un-related scenes which should have been cut out. With all those editors listed in the end credits, no-one seems to have done any cutting, because it's still 112 minutes long. The basic plot is a good love story between Erik and Cris. But then there's also the relationship to the Mom. and the Dad. and wondering if boyfriend is playing around. and violence. and Christianity. And i'm not sure why we spent so much time caring what ALL the friends thought. and then SO much emphasis on their careers. and a fling with a guy who decides he wants to be paid. and a stabbing. It seemed to me that the director needs to focus on one main plot, and edit the film around that. I got the feeling that he was determined to include all those sub-plots, and it's very confusing. Written, directed, edited by Chri Pablo early on. I'd like to see his more recent projects. This one and "Bathouse" are playing on FilmRise channel. Will look for more recent works.
