Andrés Cuadrado is a strict official of the Ministry of Finance. He is racist, uber-macho, and homophobic. He considers himself, above all, an “upright citizen” and assumes that everything responds to a natural, hierarchical, and immovable order. After an unfortunate confrontation with a co-worker, where he exhibits his bigoted behavior, he is sanctioned and transferred to Equality, where everything is new for him. It’s a who’s who of the LGBT community, with everyone open and free. There, he will have to catch up to adapt to this new order of things. How To Be A Modern Man is a fun, fresh, and optimistic fish-out-of-water comedy with a much-needed social message.
