After many years in Spain, Troy returns to Los Angeles and phones Jonathan, his ex, to meet for coffee. A seemingly innocent rendezvous turns flirtatious as they are swept away by each other’s presence and memories of the past. Troy, a damaged, passive aggressive beauty, tries to revive his summer romance with Jonathan, while struggling to decide between returning to Los Angeles or his life in Barcelona. Jonathan, who has found solace from the breakup in his current beau, Raul, struggles with desire and longing. He has never been able to heal from the trauma of Troy breaking up with him, and Troy’s arrival and his imminent attraction threaten his relationship with Raul. An Argentinean immigrant, and the most mature and least damaged of the three, Raul doesn’t immediately confront Jonathan’s growing attraction to Troy and its effects, and he begins to question how much of a sacrifice he’s willing to make for a life in America with Jonathan.
