Summary Cocaine-snorting homosexual hedonist writer-director Pablo Quintero is bereft because his boyfriend Juan has just moved out. Pablo meets Antonio at a party, and they share a few passionate nights, but Antonio soon proves far too clingy for Pablo's taste. All hell breaks loose when Antonio comes across a sad, yearning love note from Juan, which ignites in Antonio a bonfire of jealous possessiveness. Pablo's transsexual sister Tina and her daughter Ada get involved in the mess as well. None of their lives will ever be the same because of this tragic unrequited love triangle.
