A man is engrossed by his demons and passions in a desperate and frenetic search for unconditional love.
Gay single father Santiago has reached a tipping point in his life. Reeling from a bitter breakup, Santiago is also facing the impending departure of his daughter Laila, with whom he shares an intensely close, emotionally volatile relationship. The fear of being alone threatens to swallow him whole, and his behavior becomes increasingly erratic. Over the course of a chaotic summer divided between Argentina and Brazil, Santiago must learn to let go of Laila so each can find their respective freedoms. Wandering Hearts draws complex, empathic characters while employing unaffected dialogue to tell a story of intense longing for unconditional love.
