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.

Excellent!
7 December 2002 | by (Vacaville, CA) – See all my reviews

A few minutes after I started watching this movie I completely forgot that it was just a movie with actors just portraying their respective characters. I truly felt that I was watching "real people" as they went about their respective twelve hours in this movie. I wonder why this movie was not nominated for any Oscars!

I have,unfortunately, lived away from my Puerto Rico since 1978 but watching this movie I felt that I was back, watching this story develop right in front of my eyes.

Although most of the actors, with the exception of Marcos Betancourt, were unfamiliar to me I was absolutely impressed with their performance. Hopefully, I will see all of them in future movies!
