Rubens is a carefree, charismatic swimming instructor who finds himself accused of inappropriate behaviour towards a student in Carolina Jabor‘s Liquid Truth.

Other parents and colleagues are eager to condemn him, but the only evidence of his crime is the word of a parent interpreting the words of her child. Is he really guilty?

Taking inspiration from a play by Catalan author Josep Maria Miró, the film brings heightened awareness to delicate themes of homosexuality and paedophilia, and offers a perceptive look at insidious accusations.
