    • Synopsis
    • Santiago, a twenty-something Argentinean, takes a boat to Montevideo to claim land willed
      to him by his parents. On his way out of the capitol, he notices Juliette, a young Belgian
      woman who was also on the boat. After discovering they’re heading in the same direction,
      the two travelers hit the road together. Both are looking to make a change in their lives:
      Santiago used to be an investment banker in Manhattan, but his parents’ death has inspired
      him to try something different. Juliette is hoping to ignite a relationship with a Uruguayan
      commune leader she’d met in Costa Rica. The two strike up a playful friendship as their trip
      brings them in contact with peculiar locals, Santiago’s wealthy, well-connected family, and
      the hippy commune’s earthy residents. Braun combines French, U.S., and South American
      influences with dramatic Uruguayan landscapes and his lead’s relaxed chemistry to create
      a road movie that captures the airy restlessness of youth, in the tale of two characters who
      start out digging into their past, only to find they’ve unearthed their present.
