"TOUCHING, IMPORTANT, AND SURPRISINGLY INSPIRING, THIS MOVIE IS A TESTAMENT TO THE POWER OF DIALECT AND HOW IT SHAPES OUR WORLDVIEW AND FUSES AND UNITES US." – Kalyn Corrigan, Slashfilm
When his husband surprises him with weekly Spanish lessons, Adam (Mark Duplass, Bombshell, The Morning Show) is unsure about where or how this new element will fit into his already structured life. But after tragedy strikes, his Spanish teacher, Cariño (Natalie Morales, Dead To Me, Parks And Recreation), becomes a lifeline he didn't know he needed. Adam develops an unexpected and complicated emotional bond with Cariño — but do you really know someone just because you've experienced a traumatic moment with them? Bittersweet, honest, and at times darkly funny, this award-winning* debut from director Natalie Morales is a "poignant, funny, and emotionally resonant (Screen Rant) exploration of platonic love.
