- Pilar’s Brother
In 1968, Julian’s mother has returned to Chile to care for his dying grandmother, leaving obedient Julian to juggle his temporary responsibility for his mentally ill sister, studies, and job. He also must juggle his American lifestyle: the one that his family knows about, as well as the one that his strong, Catholic, Chilean immigrant family, doesn’t know about — that of being a closeted gay man, and aspiring actor. What choices will Julian make when a big opportunity arises, one complicated by his volatile sister? Inspired by a true story.
