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.

This film is also featured in the 2017 Film Festival’s HBO Ibero American Competition Film Category
