EAST COAST PREMIERE

Natalio is a passionate and dedicated primary school teacher. He displays his concerns for his students both in and out of the classroom through his relationship with a troubled student, Miguel, whom he mentors and sponsors. His life revolves around his students and his mother, with whom Natalio lives. Natalio’s comfortable and ordered life is disrupted when his friend Juani moves to town and their relationship becomes the focal point of speculation and conjecture among the town’s inhabitants. The arrival of Juani and the fact he and Natalio are living together embodies the reality of living in a small Argentine town where everyone knows everyone else and their business. The protagonists’ relationship rips the thin veneer from the town exposing the town’s residents’ prejudices and hypocrisies.
