subtitles: Polish and English
Family Members Introduzione all'oscuro

Sergio (Diego Peretti), a resident of Buenos Aires, not only looks like Tony Montana from Scarface, he also behaves a bit like him. A porn actor in his forties, he likes drugs, alcohol and women; since he also has problems controlling his emotions, he also gets into fights on a regular basis. As he finds himself getting into deeper and deeper trouble, he meets Jane (one of the stars of U.S. independent cinema, Julianne Nicholson), a producer from the United States who clearly has a thing for him and can help him get his life together. But is Sergio capable of anything other than a quick fling? The film has plenty of those, since they are the very foundation of this black comedy by Independent Spirit Award winners Rania Attieh and Daniel Garcia, whose previous film, H, was shown at New Horizons four years ago. The pair made their latest production in the capital of Argentina in order to show the pros and cons of life as a single man in a big city and to reflect on the state of contemporary masculinity.
