In the wild, youth will come of age.
Fernando is a teenage boy living in the traditional countryside of São Paulo. With the insurmountable peer pressure to lose his virginity, he ends up engaging in a sexual encounter with an older man he met online. The hook up doesn't go as expected.
Born in the countryside of Brazil, Rafael Thomaseto was raised by Italian immigrants in a small town called Jundiaí. He is a film director and producer currently residing in Los Angeles and co-founder of the boutique production company, Driven Equation. Thomaseto has participated in the Warner Media fellowship "Tomorrow's Filmmaker Today", he is a proud member of the Queer Producers Network and one of the founders of the Brazilian Filmmakers Collective. Rafael’s films and tv projects were present in international festivals such as Sundance Film Festival, Tribeca Film Festival, Aspen Shortfest, Palm Springs Shortfest, Series Fest, Mix Brasil de Cultura e Diversidade, and many others.
