Donato works as a life guard patrolling the spectacular but treacherous Futuro Beach. When he dives into the sea he saves Konrad, a German vacationing in Brazil, but Konrad’s friend is lost.
Soon a bond grows between Donato and Konrad and the initial sexual sparks give way to a deeper, emotional relationship. The two men find themselves falling in love and Donato decides to leave everything behind and follows Konrad to Berlin. Far from Futuro Beach, Donato finds both confusion and liberation in the cold but vital German capital.
