SOULBOUND (TEUS OLHOS MEUS), by director Caio Sóh with Emílio Dantas, Paloma Duarte, Remo Rocha and Roberto Bomtempo.
When a feeling overflows through the fingers of destiny, affecting two bodies in an instantaneous and intense way, we call it soul bound love. Gill is a twenty years old young man that questions himself and the world. He is an orphan, raised by his aunt Leila (Paloma Duarte) and his uncle Cesar (Roberto Bomtempo). His lifestyle is fulfilled by his guitar, poetry and alcohol, generating a family war that causes Gil to run away from home causing him to leave behind all his belongings, security and the only love that he had till then, the love of his aunt Leila. With his guitar on this back, without a destiny, money or the support of friends, Gil meets Otavio (Remo Rocha), a fifty years old music producer with whom he lives experiences that transcend the paradigms of love.
