Mi Ultimo Round
Sunday, Oct 16, 2011 11:00 AM
Octavio is a decent boxer and one day he attracts the attention of Hugo. They become friendly and begin to spend more time together. When Octavio makes an unexpected pass at Hugo, he panics and rebuffs Octavio. Eventually though, they work their way through to a physical relationship. When Octavio has to deal with medical issues and is forced to retire from the ring, they move together to Santiago to start a new life together in relative obscurity. Life gets complicated when Hugo gets a job and meets Jenny, the boss’s daughter. While naïve Hugo deals with the unwanted romantic attention from Jenny, Octavio deals with his jealousy and the burning desire to return to the ring not matter what the cost.
