Ten years ago, a fateful taxi ride turned into a life-shattering experience for a 17-year-old boy. Now, Erick is coming to terms with that incident—which he has kept secret all this time—and its aftermath in this heartfelt and poignant documentary. Having never sought help from family, the police, or doctors, he is just now beginning to heal, to forgive himself, and to discover that ever-important self-love. Moreover, by reaching out to his family and revealing his story, more secrets come to light, allowing Erick to finally reclaim his life, as well as help others to tell their own truths. Winner of the LGBTQ+ Premio Maguey Award for Best Film at the Guadalajara Film Festival.
