Stuck in a suffocating prison cell with the bustling city of 1975 Buenos Aires just beyond the walls that confine them, Valentin, a political prisoner, and Molina, a plant sent to spy on Molina, only have each other for company. Molina passes the hours by telling Valentin stories of classic films, and they form a beautiful relationship in stark contrast to the terrifying world that surrounds them. Molina must choose loyalty to either Valentin or the regime. Written by Manuel Puig. Directed by Guillermo Reyes.

En el año 1975, en una prisión de la ciudad de Buenos Aires, atrapados en una sofocante celda, Valentín, un prisionero político, y Molina, un hombre gay, encuentran  consuelo en su compañía mutua. Molina pasa las horas narrando las historias de películas clásicas y los dos forman una íntima relación muy diferente al mundo aterrador de fuera.  Aún así, las autoridades buscan la manera de volver el uno contra el otro. Una obra de Manuel Puig. Dirigida por Guillermo Reyes.
