The Edge of your Skin (El filo de tu piel)

I’m going to fall in love with you like a fool.

“I’m going to fall in love with you like a fool. That’s the first thing I think as soon as I see you walk in. And I wasn’t wrong. Not in the slightest…”

Diego Valderrama is a middle-class Latin American soap opera writer who has recently separated from his wife. His life completely changes after a trip to New York, where he meets true love for the first time. These feelings surface when he meets Ulises, a Puerto Rican man who has survived the madness of the nights in Chelsea, the seductive and mythical gay neighborhood of New York. He’s an interesting, handsome guy… and HIV positive.

With him, Diego discovers pleasure, reaffirms his true sexual orientation, and declares himself openly gay. It quickly becomes an intense and passionate relationship. However, every action has an equal opposite reaction. As a result, Diego indulges in parties, sex, and inevitable debauchery.

What for Diego seems, at last, to be the finding of his place in the world turns into a tumultuous love, which will lead him to rethink his self-esteem and his future.
