    • Synopsis
    • Set in the loneliness and harshness of a fishing village, this crude drama discusses shredded love.
      An ensemble film which doesn’t limit itself to portraying the individuality of its characters, but rather focuses on the bond between them. That’s how three characters meet up and see their lives gear simultaneously in a different direction from that point on.
      The Kid [El gurí], tells the story of Gonzalo, a 10-year-old boy whose mother is about to die and is left alone to take care of his 8-month-old sister. Adrift, he looks around for options of a home for his young sister.
      In his pilgrimage, he meets up with a traveler (Sofía Gala), a broken couple (Daniel Aráoz and Susana Hornos), and the owner of a former cabaret (Federico Luppi). This is the context of a shattered story which spins around the subjects of love, pain, family and desire.
