The Blossoming of Maximo Oliveros
Maxi (Nathan Lopez), a boy on the cusp of his teens, is already comfortable with his homosexual feelings. He dresses in girls' clothing and wears makeup, with nothing but acceptance from his family. When Maxi is assaulted one evening, Victor (J.R. Valentin), a police officer, comes to his aid. Maxi soon develops a crush on Victor, who shows a platonic affection for the young lad. The unorthodox friendship is strained when Victor's job leads him to Maxi's brothers and father.
