Jesse is an adolescent addicted to chatting. One day an unknown gay “friend” proposes a blind date in a public place, but the boy, not having seen his face, insists he uses a “red” shirt so he can recognize him. What Jesse never imagined was that with that meeting some of his worst fears would come true, beyond anything he could imagine. Along with a stop at the Havana Film Festival, ROJO won both Best Screenplay and Best Short Film at the Entre Largos y Cortos Film Festival.
