When friendship turns to love
After Bruno’s girlfriend dumps him, they continue to see each other occasionally in an open relationship. But when Laura finds Pablo, Bruno’s thoughts turn to revenge. He decides to befriend Pablo in order to drive a wedge between the happy couple, perhaps by introducing Pablo to another woman. Frequenting the same gym is an easy way to meet, and soon they become good friends.
What starts as a scheme, slowly grows into a deep and meaningful relationship, with noticeable chemistry between the men. Bruno is more in touch with his feelings, whereas a confused Pablo tries to rationalize the situation, while desperately holding on to a platonic friendship. A sense of humor and a willingness to experiment help the men along until they’re ready to accept the change in their relationship. Plan B is a heartfelt story of two friends finding unexpected romance with each other.
