DISTINGUISHED FEELINGS
ELENA and ARTURO are a couple fully in love until one day, one of their friends sow seeds of doubts in their minds. Philippe reveals to Elena that Arturo is tired of their relationship. He no longer loves her but doesn’t have the guts to tell her. But all is fair in love and war! ELENA will organize their break up herself. Hurt, she hired a young “straight” actor, BASTIEN, to seduce her ex-lover and make him suffer. Elena believes she will be less humiliated if Arturo would accept his “gay predilection” and fell in love with a men, instead of a woman. But the heart has reasons that reasoning doesn’t know…Elena starts to feel jealous, victim of her own trap! Celebrating his gay wedding, Arturo finally discovers Elena’s stratagem and thanks her for helping him realize his “true self”. Sweet farewell gift!
