When handsome and charismatic Pablo arrives at his affluent family’s house everyone is eagerly awaiting the return of their beloved son, devoted father and caring husband. A seemingly exemplary pillar of Guatemala City’s Evangelical Christian community, Pablo’s announcement that he intends to leave his wife sends shock waves through the family.

As Pablo tries to acclimate to his new life, his ultra-religious family does everything in its power to get their prodigal son back on track, no matter the cost.

"If Bustamante’s lucid second feature makes it feel as though the world itself is trembling beneath your feet, it’s because this mercilessly grounded film keys into the devilishness of Pablo’s dilemma: Forcing him to choose between himself and his family is the only way to guarantee that he ultimately loses both"

"There are any number of movies about gay men trying to liberate themselves from the long shadow of heteronormative oppression — a regrettably, enduringly relevant premise — but few have been told with the extraordinary nuance or compassion of Jayro Bustamante’s TREMORS."
David Ehrlich - INDIEWIRE

"It’s a magnificently unflinching film from a master director in the making, whose thunderous strength will surely make waves in Bustamante’s Central American homeland and abroad."
TheWrap - CARLOS AGUILAR

"Jayro Bustamante offers a thoughtful, emotionally-charged exploration of a devoutly religious family man torn apart by the revelation of his love for another man."
Allan Hunter - SCREEN INTERNATIONAL

"A penetrating, mournful portrait of sexual identity in contemporary Guatemala City."
Michael Rechtshaffen - LOS ANGELES TIMES
