13-year-old Rodrigo is a solitary teenager who finds solace in his intimate relationship with his mother, Valeria. She is his best friend, his protector, and his entire world.

He must decide if he should accept his new family or fight back and hurt the person he loves the most.
“The battle lines of territorial masculinity are drawn with compelling psychological complexity in Summer White... This taut first narrative feature is virtually a romantic-triangle scenario, its heat, anger and hurt persuasively played by a fine trio of actors.” –David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter
