It contains mirth but also sadness , light humor , sensitive relation -on a plane and at hotel- among likeable roles , laughters , and spectacular final with a large plane on the tracks . Well portrayed characters , outstanding the nice acting by Alex Garcia as Slastan, a Karadjistan man finally reconciling with humanity. As well as an enjoyable relationship between Slatan/Álex García who is willing to immolate himself and Nancy/Veronica Echegui that will rescue Slatan and herself from their thunderous past lives .
