My Last Round

(Mi último round)

by Julio Jorquera

Chile/Argentina 2010, 90 min, HD

Every chance is worth fighting for

In the south of Chile a love story is born between successful boxer Octavio and Hugo, a kitchen assistant. Moving to the capital Santiago, they expect to fulfil their dreams and live their love – secretly defying it from the hostile outside. But nothing turns out like planned: while Hugo meets Jennifer, who shows him a world unknown, Octavio makes a new attempt at what he does best: boxing. But this time he doesn’t look for victory. This fight could be a new way out – or his very last round.
