I will not give you a summary of the movie as that has already been done above.
I gave it a 3 due to the fact that I was very disappointed by the lost potential of the movie. The basic premise had the makings of an excellent movie, but everything was spoiled by cheesy, predictable situations that never really went anywhere. It is populated with a great deal of two-dimensional characters that do not gain your sympathy in any way. If you have ever seen 'Two Lane Blacktop' starring James Taylor, then you get the idea of what sort of "quality" we're dealing with.
This movie is not one of Argentina's best. Fortunately, within the last ten years, Argentina has begun to produce some excellent movies that will hopefully erase bad ones such as this off the record.
