    • Synopsis
    • A German actor comes to Montevideo looking for a woman who left him. The only clue he has to track her down is a notebook she left behind in Berlin.
      A few hours after he arrives the German loses his way in the streets and runs into a group of young men who try to rob him. Pedro, an ex-addict in his forties who is going through the worst depression of his life, intervenes and helps him get away, and he gives him roof over his head and some advice about how to get around in the city. In spite of this help they do not find the woman and the German keeps getting into trouble, something he has a talent for. Along the way the foreigner tells the story of his lost love to various strangers and this is how he recruits Nelson, a laconic security guard whose wife has left him and who enters into the German’s quest as if it was his own.
      With Pedro and Nelson, the German sets out on a journey through the suburbs of Montevideo. United by suffering, the three men search for the German’s woman as if each of them was searching for his own.
      Blinded by their inner turmoil, this improvised gang go out to raise hell in the deserted city where only people who have not been able to leave remain.
      An adventure in vandalism shot through with fierce bitter-sweet humour.
