A place that is caught halfway between tradition and modernity.
CNCA, Film Promotion Fund 2017
Lucas goes to visit his sister on a remote town in southern Chile before moving abroad. An unlikely romance grows when he meets Antonio, a struggling young fisherman. Their relationship will force them to confront their own realities and break their loneliness, learning to trust the people they can finally feel close to. “Los Fuertes” is the story of the love between these two young men, who grow together towards a new space of independence in their adulthood, in a place that is caught halfway between tradition and modernity.
