Daniel Adum Gilbert,
The portrait of an invisible generation. A punk ballad told from the point of view of 10 youngsters with stories that interconnect, not with their destinies but with their concepts: the trip as a way of reinvention, questioning happiness and the system, evasion, moral limits, madness, decadence and love.Written by

This may not be the best movie Ecuador has ever done but is a good try
Filled with Latin-American clichés and an screenplay some people may find funny and some foreign audience may not understand it all. Stills a good try to revive Ecuadorian's cinema. Some performances are good but they fail to be alive because of the little screen time they are given. The big problem here is that there are so many characters the writer fails to develop any of them often giving hints of what could happened, what happened and what will happen but never allowing the audience to feel connected to any of them, the only exception may be Paulina Obrist who literally bares herself to the point her emotions make you feel like being in a roller-coaster and make you miss her when she's off the screen, a true revelation. The techs are good, a very well improvement for this third-world cinema which's just starting to grow. Overall a very good conceived idea with a disappointed ending that will left audience wondering what happened during the last two hours but that will make people recover faith on national's filmmaking.
