Sinopsis:
Manuel Puig fue un escrito de una vida intensa: viajes, amores prohibidos, persecuciones y gloria signaon un camino singular y diferente. El film narra sus años en Rio de Janeiro, donde se radicó, tras partir de la Argentina, acosado por su condición homosexual. Su conmovedora amistad con una sofisticada diplomatica y una refinada profesora de letras, su ?matrimonio? (según sus ironicas palabras) con un hombre moreno y cuarenton, oriundo de Pernambuco y sus amores marginales con hombres jovenes a los que grababa sus conversaciones; dan marco a esta historia particular, llena de sugestión. Aficionado al cine de Hollywood. La historia tambien lo muestra en su relacion con la vedette Argentina Kari Ker (escultural, exotica y desfachatada) y en su deseo caprichoso de nadar entre petalos de rosas. Su vida nocturna, su melancolia, su necesidad de escribir y sus carencias afectivas y emociones asoman a lo largo del relato, que concluye con su dolorosa partida hacia Mexico, donde decidio instalarse para siempre.

Plot:
Manuel Puig was a writer of an intense life: trips, exiles, prohibited lovers, persecutions and glory signed a singular and different way. The film tells his years in Rio de Janeiro, where it took root after runing off of Argentina, persecuted by its condition of homosexual. Its stirring friendship with a sophisticated diplomat and one refined professor of letters, his marriage (according to its ironic words) with a dark man in his forty's, native of Pernambuco and his marginal love with young men to whom he recorded their conversations; give frame to this particular, full story of suggestion. Fan to the cinema of Hollywood, Manuel had an exceptional collection of videos of Hollywood, that he reviewed obsessively, with enormous delight, in his apartment near the sea, in the district of Leblon. Manuel loved swimming, and spent the afternoons in the beach, where he also established contact with boys. The story also shows him in his relation with the Argentinian vedette Kari Kerr (sculptural, exotic and brazen) and in his desire to swim between petals of roses. His nocturnal life, his melancholy, his necessity to write and his affective deficiencies and emotions show throughout the story, that concludes with his painful departure towards Mexico, where decided to settle for ever.
