Suffering from a secret terminal illness, Fernando (Julio Chávez) decides to leave urban life behind, setting out in a sailboat to find whatever solace remains available to him in nature. Fernando’s solitude is compromised, however, by his unexpected encounter with Carla (Pilar Gamboa), a young woman pursued by authorities for a crime she did not commit.
The latest from Argentine director Matías Lucchesi echoes the bucolic setting and intergenerational dynamics of his feature debut, Natural Sciences, while introducing a quicker pulse and greater urgency into his repertoire. Instead of a burden, Carla’s desperate situation becomes a sort of gift for Fernando, an opportunity for him to feel meaningfully alive and in human communion one last time.
