The whole village is devastated when their fellow villager, young, beloved racing driver Jesús López, dies in an accident. His cousin Abel, a drifting teenager, increasingly feels tempted to take Jésus’ place, not only wearing Jesús’ clothes and getting closer to his cousin’s friends, but also moving in with Jesús’ parents. At first, people accept this behaviour, but as Abel emulates his cousin more and more, the villagers start to feel uncomfortable. A car race in memory of Jesús is organized in the village. Abel takes part, driving Jesús’ car.
Director Maximiliano Schonfeld situated his film in a rural community in Argentina, convincingly conveying what life is like for young people living there. Blending magical-realistic elements into his psychological approach, he tells a story of transformation and resurrection. Winner Best Latin American Film at the Mar del Plata Film Festival.
