    • Synopsis
    • Absence is a common feeling among the people in Cochabamba. Abad is a christian bus driver. His wife left him, and went to Spain, leaving him in charge of his only son Deko. Abad lives with the illusion that her wife is going to come back and be with him. Deko is the lead singer in a neo punk group, which philosophy in life is self destruction.   Snake came back to Bolivia after living five year in the U.S. H e is obsessed with hitting a big criminal strike. With his sidekick and friend Troy. This strike will allow them to have a great quantity of cocaine. The two of them had been victims of the American dream. They were immigrants rejected by that society, and despite that, they are influenced by that culture in their everyday life.   Criss will finish High School soon, and his worries, are very common. Since he is a young dad, Criss considers the option to go and work in Spain, because he can't find a job in Bolivia to support his baby boy.     The present, past and future absence marks the lives of these characters and left them with a smell of absence.
