This film plays as part of the San Diego Latino Film Festival. According to the festival brochure, "Tall, dark, androgynously handsome, Pierre wears eyeliner and a black lace g-string, and has sex with both boys and girls. Things get only more complicated when the teenager’s single, working-class mom is arrested for having stolen him at birth. Pierre is returned to his biological parents: bourgeois, straight-laced, and thrilled to have him back- until he shows up in a zebra-print mini dress. The turmoil of adolescence is plumbed with wit and compassion by writer/director Anna Muylaert." 2016.
