“I’m 23 years old. My name is Gerónimo, but people call me Jesse. I hate my family. I hate my brother. I don’t know what to do with my life. Is this a trip or a dream?”
Jess (Martín Karich) is a bohemian youth with secrets to hide from his shrewd parents. James (Nicolás Romeo) feels trapped living with his irritable mother. After meeting for a sexual encounter, the two young men set off on a spontaneous road trip across rural Argentina to reunite with Jess’ estranged brother. On their journey, they confront strange occurrences and engage in a ménage à trois affair with another companion (Federico Fontán) that brings them even closer together. Their newly found affection grows, all while discovering a fresh vision of freedom and happiness.
Stylishly created by prolific writer-director-producer-actor Santiago Giralt, Jess & James is a sexually charged road-trip movie, a love story, and a coming-of-age tale set against the gorgeous, mythical landscape of the Argentinian Pampas.
