Best friends since childhood, Manuel and Felipe spend their teenage days playing soccer on the beach, trading boyish “Would you rather?” ultimatums, and practicing in their rock band. When Felipe helps Manuel set the perfect backdrop for Manuel’s first romantic night with his girlfriend, Azul, Manuel secretly can’t help but think about Felipe. Although the boys confide in each other about everything, this topic seems off-limits since Manuel’s unsure if the feelings are mutual. As Felipe and Manuel prepare for an upcoming party where they’ll be playing their greatest hits for a crowd of friends and girls they’re allegedly interested in, the duo begins to collaborate on a brand new song. Vulnerable lyrics flow freely from Manuel, and channeling his emotions into his music may give him the courage to finally be honest with Felipe. But will Manuel’s affection inevitably doom their friendship? Set to a soundtrack of jam sessions, SUBLIME shares a tender story of innocence, heartache, and beautiful young love. —A.B.
