Raised as brothers, intense teammates and competitors on the soccer field – the gregarious, swaggering Julio (Eliu Armas) and the wiry, focused Daniel/“Gato” (Fernando Moreno) have remained virtually inseparable ever since the newborn Daniel was found abandoned in a trash heap in their La Ceniza slum. The opportunity of their lives arrives when a football scout invites them to try out for the city’s top professional team, just as a tragic act of violence threatens to tear them apart and prevent them from achieving their dreams.
“Packs a potent punch”
“It's very affecting, and the lead performances...are absolutely dynamite.”
“Make sure that you don't miss it.”

Watch SIBYL on Virtual Cinema!
Lacking inspiration for her new novel, psychotherapist Sibyl (Virginie Efira) borrows source material from her newest patient Margot (Adèle Exarchopoulos, Blue is the Warmest Color), blurring fiction and reality in this sly, sultry character study from Justine Triet. Find SIBYL playing in select theaters and virtually with a local arthouse under “Theatrical Engagements” in the link below.
