In this unique ghost story set on the Peruvian seaside, a married fisherman struggles to reconcile his devotion to his male lover within his town’s rigid traditions. Miguel (Cristian Mercado), a handsome young fisherman, and his beautiful bride, Mariela (Tatiana Astengo), are about to welcome their first child. But he’s in love with Santiago (Manolo Cardona). After an accident, Miguel must make a choice that could reveal his secret relationship. “Undertow” is Peru’s official submission to the 2011 Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film. Whether or not the film receives an Oscar nomination remains to be seen.
