On a shimmering summer night, 19-year-old father Gabriel, his best friend Joel and his girlfriend Corey wander the streets. During a break-in at the zoo, a tense closeness develops between Gabriel and Corey. But the freedom of the intoxicating night is not without consequences. Pumas and giraffes have escaped, throwing the city into turmoil. And Gabriel's life is also thrown off track. Between paternal responsibility and his own passion, he searches for the right path. SOUL OF A BEAST unleashes a storm of magical images that tell of the dichotomy between dream and reality, of pain and love. Narration dissolves and becomes fantasy.
