Storyline

Gregorio Gamboa is back in Uruguay after leaving years before because of political problems. He returns with his wife, Mercedes, an argentinean he met in Spain, and his two adolescent children, Mateo and Cayetana, born in the same country and forced into a land they know only throught the biased tales of their parents. Together, they plan to build their definite house over land that belonged to Gregorio's grandfather, but little does the rest of the family suspect that beneath the terrain there is a huge number of weapons buried by Gregorio during his youth. One day, in a moment of reconciling, the father tells Mateo his secret, unleashing a wave of events that will change their lives forever. Written by Hermés Piqué

Worst Movie I ever seen
21 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the first time that I add a comment, but I have to do it, because I am very upset with the movie. The plot is non existent, poor photography. Forget it!! Do not even try. Do not waste your time like I did. The director does not even try, he does not make any effort. I think this movie is from Uruguay, even though some scenes are filmed in Argentina. I've seen better Argentinian movies, but this one..... After the first half hour, the story stop making any sense (assuming that it made sense the first half). The picture quality is awful, out of focus, the image changes texture, poor editing. Poorest performance ever seen by Jean Pierre Noher, the rest of the cast is inexistent.
