It’s November 1989, and the Berlin Wall is coming down. But as Germany reunifies, Roberto and Miguel find themselves coming apart at the seams. The two look back at their ten years together — a tumultuous decade that included coming out of the closet and dealing with HIV — and come to terms with what it takes to stay together. Subtle and haunting, this moving Spanish drama skillfully explores the beautiful complexity of a long-term relationship.
