    • Synopsis
    • Three teenagers: Gerardo, Nano and Raymundo, spend their spare time stealing gasoline to drive around aimlessly around town. Nano and Raymundo are brothers-in-law. However, this places Nano in a predicament when he learns of his sister’s unwanted pregnancy from his best friend. Tensions rise when the three teens get into a car accident that develops into a wild ride, where each stop is a clash with reality that puts their friendship to the test. It shows that teenage friendships have a thin line that separates betrayal, deception and a kamikaze-like solidarity. Gasolina is an intimate story that exposes the moments of sincerity and oppression that portrays a country and defines its youth.
