CGiii Comment

Oooh...with a bit if thought, this could have been...so very special.

Start with the hug...end with the hug!

Lucho comes over as an absolute brat...no need for 'the finger' - he's just a kid who needs a sharp, short lesson in respect!

The(ir) Blurb...

Lucho knows who he is. It’s the others who seem mixed up, inspecting him closely, addressing him as a girl and pestering him with questions. The time spent with his dad during a beach holiday draws attention to the process of transition that Lucho is experiencing. Struggling with his own insecurities, Lucho’s father tries hard to keep their close bond intact, while young Lucho attempts to come to terms with the development of a body going through puberty.
