    • Synopsis
    • Buenos Aires. On the top floor of a hospital, a Spaniard that has lived half his life in Argentina realizes that he is dying. This old hired killer -tough, funny and tender- runs away with a happy load of morphine, and starts a trip up North, heading nowhere in particular. A girl he finds on the road will be his loyal companion along two thousand kilometres of black comedy.
      A hired killer who doesn't kill in a film with roads, dogs and guns.
