In 1920, some workers of Patagonia, grouped in anarchist and socialist societies, decide to make a strike demanding better working conditions. The situation becomes unsustainable and the government sends the order is restored.
When journalist Manuel Cueto is hired to type novelist Joaquín Góñez's last book, his presence provokes an avalanche of feelings that bring Joaquín to the edge of emotions and memories that had lain dormant in the solitude of the last stages of his creative life. Accustomed to years of loneliness, Joaquín finds in the young journalist a bridge to the forgotten years of his youth in the 60's and 70's, during his wild years in Buenos Aires.

Beautiful first-rate film from great Dir.A.Aristain. Don't miss it!
This is a beautiful film. A first-rate script, first-rate direction, first-rate photography, top-notch acting by simply everyone. This films makes you "taste" good emotional music (classical, tango and jazz), and makes you "taste" great literature since the Director throws all this into a pot and cooks a delicious real-life recipe. The base of the film is the true and deep love of a mother for his only son, who she believes has a relevant stage in history destined for him. I cannot but strongly recommend that you see this film which will keep you watching and keep you delighted throughout the 2 1/2 hours which pass so fast (than the real time) you could swear you have just discovered Einstein's relativity theory to be utterly true!
