Synopsis: Winner of multiple audience awards internationally, including the 2010 Sundance World Cinema Audience Award, UNDERTOW (Contracorriente) from Peru is the outstanding debut feature film of Javier Fuentes-León. Capturing the hidden beauty of the sweeping Peruvian coastline, this haunting, bittersweet tale of a unique love-triangle examines the quest to define sexual identity, when confronted by dogma and tradition. In a small fishing village on the Northern coast of Peru, where religious traditions run deep, Miguel (Cristian Mercado, Che), a well respected local fisherman and his beautiful bride, Mariela (Tatiana Astengo), are about to welcome their firstborn. But Miguel harbours a secret; he is also in love with Santiago (Manolo Cardona, Beverly Hills Chihuahua), a visiting artist who has been ostracized by the local community because of his homosexuality. Forced to deal with the consequences of his acts, Miguel must come to terms with who he really is, even if by doing so he risks losing everything, including the people he loves the most.
