Touch the Sky Details


A cynical former literature teacher falls for a pretty student who comes looking to him for advice in director Marcos Carnevale's tear-drenched drama. Pedro (Chete Lara) is an obnoxious, overbearing curmudgeon who lives his son Fidel (Raul Arevalo) but never has a kind word for the boy. While Pedro's best friend Gloria (Betiana Blum) tolerates her tempestuous pal's outbursts, their playful relationship takes a serious turn after Gloria is diagnosed with cancer. Meanwhile, left wing professor Pedro attempts to reconcile his feelings for pretty student Elena (Veronica Echegui), whose presence as of late has stirred long dormant romantic notions in the old man. Their lives will soon intersect with those of Argentinean orphan Santiago (Facundo Arana) and Amparo (Montse German), an eager mother to be. When Santiago's parents were killed in a car accident years ago, Gloria was kind enough to raise the boy as her own. Now, Amparo longs to adopt a child, and Santiago is willing to marry her if it means making her dream of motherhood come true. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
