Dean (David Sutcliffe) is a comic book artist living in California. When a fire destroys his home, and his lover, Pablo (Antonio Sabato Jr.), disappears, Dean suffers a creative block. With nothing else to do, he decides to go to Argentina and look for Pablo. Though Pablo's wealthy mother (Sonia Braga) offers little help, Pablo's friends Marcos (Leonardo Brzezicki) and Sofia (Celina Font) are oddly forthcoming. Meanwhile, Dean's editor (Jennifer Coolidge) demands he get to work on a new book.
