Manuel Igrejas


A gay man reeling from the sudden death of his longtime lover meets an exotic couple, Hassan and Sylvia, who lure him into a spicy soup from which he may or may not emerge in one piece.


A lonely woman. A windy day. A plastic bag: a love story. Margarita could use a miracle. A strong spring breeze blows one of those ubiquitous black plastic bags into her path…and into her life. This is no ordinary bag and this is no ordinary day.


Miss Mary Dugan has a crush on the good-looking, mysterious guy next door. A chance encounter with Kevin, the object of his affection, forces him to ask: what does he really want--his fantasy or the prospect of getting to know his hunky neighbor in real time?


A seemingly happy gay couple meet a sexy waiter who rocks their world.
