A fresh, visually innovative, and often hilarious glimpse into the lives of some very offbeat, yet human, characters. Luciano, a failing screenwriter in Buenos Aires, lives in an almost intense state of paranoia, afraid of everything from STDs to even his doorman. Manuel, a very successful TV producer, returns to Argentina from Madrid with his stunning new girlfriend Sofia, and throws Luciano’s world into a near desperate funk. He discovers that Manuel has unflatteringly modeled him as the lead character on a successful Spanish TV show.
