Argentinian actor Leonardo Sbaraglia delivers a revelatory performance in the new gay family drama Wandering Heart. He stars as Santiago, a gay single father who has reached a tipping point in his life.
Reeling from a bitter breakup, he is also facing the impending departure of his young adult daughter Laila (played by Miranda de la Serna), with whom he shares a close yet emotionally-charged relationship.
As the fear of being alone threatens to swallow him whole, Santiago’s behavior becomes increasingly erratic and self-destructive. Over the course of a chaotic summer, divided between Argentina and Brazil, he must learn to let go of his daughter so that each of them can find their own freedoms.
Drawing complex, empathetic characters and employing unaffected dialog, Wandering Heart is deeply moving new drama that tells an intimate story about the intense longing to love and to be loved.
