Storyline

Drama unfolds in 12 short hours of nightlife in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Lives intersect and run parallel under the cover of fateful darkness in this debut feature from filmmaker Raul Marchand-Sanchez. Three divorced ladies - one serious, one wild, one repressed - go out on the town and meet trouble and fun while they bond over their varied sad experiences. A teenage daughter reluctantly sets out to lose her virginity at her peers' coaxing. A handsome gigolo turns a $500 trick he'd rather forget and spends his night dodging fears with a friendly transvestite lounge singer who puts on a great show. A grandfatherly taxi driver works the overnight shift to supplement insurance that won't cover his beloved wife's Parkinson's medication, and winds up a hero in some regards. Capturing the mayhem is a frustrated entertainment reporter who gets her big break when she buys cigarettes at a convenience store and stops a robbery, while getting it all on tape.

Great Movie!!
7 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie follows along the path of movies such as Amores Perros and Babel. If you like movies where you have multiple stories taking place, then you'll like this movie. The movie is in Spanish, filmed on location in Puerto Rico, and gives you a brief taste of what Puerto Rico is like in some parts of the country. One of the guys from Menudo makes a star appearance in the movie, and does a good job in his acting. I can't recall much from the movie as far as details are concerned, but I do recall I enjoyed it as much as my wife did. I do recall that much of the movie takes place during the night. It's been several years, and we have been wanting to watch it again. Check out the movie, if you can. That's if you can find it playing at one of those independent theaters or if you can find it on video.
