    • Synopsis
    • PEREZ (DaríoGrandinetti)
      He is a long distance bus driver. He does always the same route.
      One day he goes, the next day he returns.
      He is forty years old, he doesn´t have friends, he is shy, serious, a little bit clumsy, and he barely talks. This is the reason why everybody call him “the mute”.
      In his daily route he passes by several towns in which he repeats the same movements, he says “hello” in the same way, he seats in the same place and
      eats the same food every day. But in only one of the stations there is something that touches him.
      Nobody knows about it, and he would never dare to admit it: In this town lives…
      ROMINA (LeticiaBredice)
      She is the teacher of the town. Her simplicity hides an attractive and mysterious woman. She lives in a roadhouse in the town surroundings. Only those who know about her past can understand why she was never seen with
      a man. She is not good at relationships. The children, her pupils, seem to be her only connection with the external world.
      Only the stop of the bus in her town, once a day, calls her attention. The ministry of education asks all the teachers to do a routine medical test. As she can´t travel because of her job, she asks PEREZ to take…
      THE JAR
      PEREZ travels looking after the jar all the time, but someone suddenly enters the bus, he gets scared and lets the jar fall and break. He can´t believe what he has done, he doesn´t wanto to let Romina down and finds an absurd solution.
      This is the beginning of a very special love story between these peculiar characters which can get a smile from us despite the worst conflicts.
