Movie Info

Director Diego Lerman follows a group of Buenos Aires denizens as they struggle to make important life decisions in this tale of interconnecting lives in contemporary Argentina. Melancholy Eva is attempting to forget about the past. Advised by a palm reader to watch for signs that will tell her how to move forward, Eva immediately washes away the marks meant to guide her before being set free from her woes by an unexpected act of violence. In another part of the city, Eva's old acquaintance Violeta will be forced to choose between fleeing to Spain with her partner Mono, or leaving him in the dust to start a new life of her own. But in the meantime, Mono is awaiting Violeta's decision before making his own choice about the future. Though Mono's mild-mannered friend Ciego yearns to give his wife a healthy child, his sterility makes that prospect impossible and Ciego is soon asking Mono for the ultimate favor. While Ciego is setting up a romantic tryst between his wife and his best friend, mama's boy Dalmiro is attempting to cut the apron strings and build the groundwork for a healthy future with pretty Eva. It's easy to get through life when you know exactly what it is that you want, but sometimes it's just more interesting when you don't. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
