“El Príncipe” is a homoerotic prison drama that takes place in the 1970s and is based on Pulp Fiction by Mario Cruz.
The sexy plot follows the sexual, violent, and murderous experiences of Jaime, a young, narcissistic prisoner, who develops a relationship with Potro (Alfredo Castro from the movie “From Afar”), one of the prison leaders. Jaime has repressed his sexuality all his life so when he finds out that the prison is a permissive paradise he allows his sexuality to go free.
The sexy Jaime soon finds himself at the heart of a power-play battle between the heads of the gangs running the institution. The result is a bold and breathtaking thriller only for audience members 18 and over due to nudity, bold sex scenes and violence.
