When straight A student Yolanda aka Mosquita (Fenessa Pineda) decides to help struggling tough girl Mari (Venecia Troncoso) with her homework, an intense attraction evolves between the two. As their friendship grows, a yearning to explore their strange yet beautiful connection surfaces. Lost in their private world of unspoken affection, lingering gazes, and heart-felt confessions of uncertain futures, Yolanda s grades begin to slip while Mari s focus drifts away from her duties at a new job. Mounting pressures at home collide with their new-found desires thus driving Yolanda and Mari s relationship to the edge, forcing them to choose between their obligations to others and staying true to each other.
I did enjoy the movie on sole purpose of friendship and the culture difference that it represented. But as for the genre that it was placed in not so much. There is definite chemistry and potential but too much focus elsewhere for it to be placed in the gay and lesbian romantic movies. [amazon customer]
