Summary note:
  • "En medio de una Caracas revuelta, Armando es un hombre de cincuenta años que trabaja en su propio laboratorio de prótesis dentales. En su tiempo libre busca a hombres jóvenes en paradas de autobús y les ofrece dinero a cambio de que lo acompañen a su casa, pero solo busca compañía y observarles, no pide más. Pero Armando también tiene otra costumbre, la de espiar a un hombre de edad avanzada, con quien tiene un vínculo en común en su pasado. Un día Armando conoce a Elder, un joven de dieciocho años líder de una pequeña banda de delincuentes juveniles. Y se lo lleva a su casa, sin que ninguno de los dos intuya que de ese encuentro nacerá una relación que los cambiará para siempre"--sensacine.com.
  • "Wealthy, middle-aged Armando lures young men to his home with money. He doesn't want to touch, only watch from a strict distance. Armando's first encounter with street thug Elder is violent, but this doesn't discourage the lonely man's fascination with the tough handsome teenager. Financial interest keeps Elder visiting him regularly and an unexpected intimacy emerges. However, Armando's haunted past looms large, and Elder commits the ultimate act of affection on Armando's behalf"--Container.
