But then his parents separate. Horacio, his father, leaves the family. But not for another woman, he wants to live with a man. Mano and his older brother Pedro are appalled by their father’s coming out. Above all, they are afraid this fact might leak out to their fellow students – who place all news instantly on the Internet. Horacio, however, expects his sons to deal with it openly, so he does not prevent his new boyfriend Gustavo from attending a theater performance in their school.
