San Bernardo, Chile, 1970. One drunken night, Jaime, a lonely and narcissistic 20 year-old, stabs his best friend in what seems to have been a fit of passion.
Sentenced to prison, he will meet “The Stallion”, an older and respected man in whom Jaime will find protection, revealing a deep need for tenderness and recognition. Behind bars, Jaime will become “The Prince”, learning about love and loyalty with The Stallion in a close relationship of “black love,” as it’s called in jail, all the while facing the violent power struggle inside the prison.
With Alfredo Castro (THE SUMMIT, LOS PERROS, NARCOS, NO a.o.) in one of the main roles.
