So some relief—and comedy—ensues when Hector's budding sexuality drives a wedge between them. When Paloma ventures beyond the hotel, Hector stays behind, closing the curtains so he can masturbate. Later, without his mother there to cover him with sunscreen, he falls asleep by the pool. Soon he is discovered, red as a tomato, by Jazmin, a plump, curly-haired 16-year-old girl (Danae Reynaud Romero) whose family checks in to the otherwise-empty hotel. She takes him to her hotel room and rubs some lotion into his sunburnt back. They sit together on the bed, waiting for it to dry. It's a small event, but it's enough to change Hector's world. He becomes caught in between two women's affections, unsure of which to choose.
