Miguel is a handsome, young and beloved firsherman in Cabo Blanco, a small fishing village in the Northern coast of Per, where the community has deep-rooted religious traditions. Miguel is married to the beautiful Mariela, who is 7-months pregnant with their firstborn, but Miguel harbors a scandalous secret: He is having a love affair with another man, Santiago, a painter who is ostracized by the townsfolk for being agnostic and open about his sexuality.

With sweeping images of the beautiful Peruvian coastline, Contracorriente (Undertow) is the emotional intersection of contemporary sexuality, confronted by tradition and belief. This sexy and redolent love story is the feature film debut by Javier Fuentes-Len and stars Manolo Cardona (Beverly Hills Chihuahua), Cristian Mercado (Che), and Tatiana Astengo. This film is produced by Javier Fuentes Leon and Rodrigo Guerrero (Maria Full of Grace, Dog Eat Dog.)
