At the age of 13, Rafael Bregman has his sexual initiation thanks to arrangements made by his older brother. His first kiss, however, proves to be harder to get – he doesn’t know how to approach Nicole, a classmate he’s fallen for. Rafael struggles to live through this difficult time while dealing with his pimples, his insecurity, his parents’ imminent divorce and his daily obligations. Finding love should be the solution to all his problems. Since his friends’ advice can only help so much, Rafael will need to overcome his shyness and build up some self-confidence to get what he wants more than anything.

In the presence of Federico Veiroj.
