SERGIO GARCES THINKS HIMSELF A SUAVE, ATTRACTIVE, TALENTED ARGENTINE MAN. HE IS IN HIS 50’S, BUT HE THINKS HE’S STILL 35. HE LIVES IN BUENOS AIRES, DRINKS A LOT, AND SMOKES A TON OF WEED. HE WEARS FITTED CLOTHES AND WALKS AND TALKS LIKE A GIGOLO. AFTER GETTING INTO A BIKE ACCIDENT THAT RUINS HIS FACE, HE GETS FIRED FROM AN UPCOMING JOB AND BEGINS FINDING IT INCREASINGLY DIFFICULT TO LAND WORK. Down on his luck, he begins an affair he doesn’t want and becomes involved in a crime he didn’t mean to commit.
Includes a post screening Q&A with the director(s)
