A director interviews a group of friends to assemble a cast for a film that will never be made. At least not quite as planned, since in Medellín, a city with no horizon, the most frequent future for queer young people seems to be the past tense. In a film without restraints and without borders, in which the ghosts of reality come together with those of fiction, newcomer Theo Montoya merges the confessional with innovation, performance and archive, to portray a generation whose creative impulses are as intense and violent as they are self-destructive. (C.M.)
