Wealthy middle-aged Armando lures young men to his home with money. He doesn't want to touch, only watch from a strict distance. He also follows an elderly businessman with whom he seems to have had a trauma1c rela1onship. Armando's first encounter with street thug Elder is violent, but this doesn't discourage the lonely man's fascina1on with the tough handsome teenager. Financial interest keeps Elder visi1ng him regularly and an unexpected in1macy emerges. But Armando's haunted past looms large, and Elder commits the ul1mate act of affec1on on Armando's behalf. Desde Allá won the pres1gious Venice Film Fes1val: Golden Lion - Best Picture and the Best First Feature at La Havana Film Fes1val, both in 2015.
