According to an interview with The Moveable Fest, Fabio Audi who plays Gabriel is the one who suggested to Daniel Ribeiro that his character needed to have a bike. The original short film does not include a bike, but Daniel Ribeiro took the suggestion and started writing about the bike. It eventually became a bigger thing. See more »

It pulled my heartstrings.
If you want to feel that Oh-my-God-I-am-in-love-for-the-first-time feeling, hunt down a copy of this movie and fasten up your seat belt.
There are a lot of movies out there that pertains to the burdens of gay teenagers. However, this one seriously made its way to my heart. This is nothing mainstream, not even a hint of being a novelty film. I was jumping up and down, I cried, I laughed, I felt confused--this is a bomb;a ticking time-bomb. And the only thing that makes the ticking faster is the beat of your heart.
This is a hidden gem, a must-watch for those who are tired of mainstream movies. It is like reading a book but in a multi-sensory way and what makes this film unique is the fact that you cannot simply move on. You'll always be haunted by this movie and you'll find yourself tying the strings of your heart tighter.
