Synopsis

Mariano is a young gay man who is attracted to a heterosexual friend, who rapes and then abandons him. For Mariano, this is the beginning of a slow descent into hell, a sentimental journey with dramatic consequences. The hate and repulsion around him make his condition even more unbearable: initially afflicted by painful guilty feelings, he is soon pervaded by a strong desire for redemption, with a messianic aftermath. In a roller coaster of emotions which plunge him into a parallel, horrific and psychedelic universe, dominated by rage and a desire for revenge, Mariano senses that only castration can save him. But, at the end of this personal Calvary, he understands that there is only one solution: to take part in the revolution against the patriarchy which underpins our society.
