Animations, home movies, and family snapshots paint the portrait of D’Lo’s personality. In interviews and clips from his performances, D’Lo and his parents explain how his identity and their relationship have changed over the last twenty years.

Tremulo
Directed by Roberto Flesco
 
Carlos sweeps and mops the floor of an old-time barbershop. The day before Independence Day, among the customers is Julio. Their eyes meet, and when the barbershop closes Julio comes back for Carlos. They spend the night together, eating, chatting, and even dancing, knowing full well that this encounter will be brief and short-lived.
