It might be an advert for Coca Cola...

But...as a stand-alone film, it is a fast and furious, emotionally charged work of wonder.

Simply...stunning.

The(ir) Blurb...

How far would you go to protect your best friend's secret? In this promotional short film, a group of friends is spending some nice time having fun and playing video game. Part of this team, best buddies Rafael and Diego are teasing each other with their several talks while 'fighting' each other in the game. But when one of them gets easily distracted and leaves the room, the other will check the friend's phone to see who is the person who keeps interrupting them from time to time. Then comes a unexpected revelation that will come as a test for these boys.
