An absurdly funny comedy-drama about the disoriented generation of thirtysomethings.
A dog is both a blessing and a curse in the urban jungle of Buenos Aires. Sebastián’s dog keeps him company, but as soon as he leaves it alone, it starts to howl terribly. In the rain, all the neighbors gather at Sebastián’s door. They’re annoyed, but also worried; one of them even starts to shed tears of sympathy for the mutt. Tragic is the loneliness of dog and master, absurdly funny and stoically callous the neoliberal world in which Sebastián, the graphic designer who can’t find a proper design for his life, has to get by. Taking his dog to work with him is no solution either; it literally gets him thrown out of town. In a series of odd jobs in the boondocks, Sebastián starts to find his way into the happiness of a community. If only a catastrophe weren’t suddenly looming and threatening all of humanity!
