My Best Friend

Lorenzo is a quiet teenager who lives in a small city in Patagonia,but his life suddenly changes when for certain time, he has to host Caíto, a family friend's son of the same age, whose parents are going through difficult times. But at first things don't go well between them : Caíto doesn't seem to be very outgoing or willing to make friends. The situation is not improved by their different interests: Lorenzo loves reading , while the newcomer is passionate about mountain biking. In addition, Caíto often behaves in a mysterious way, as if he must hide something from the world. But soon a connection between the two begins to form. Lorenzo's curiosity about the mysteries that surround his new friend plays a key role in this new bond. But the step towards more complex feelings, together with physical attraction, is both rapid and unexpected. And dramatic.
