It is summer in Santiago and Tristan's perfect life is falling apart. His girlfriend leaves him, his job is interrupted by a strike, and his suitcase is stolen. On the other end of the city, Cristina's quiet life is changing. She finds the suitcase inside a garbage can and enters Tristan's world through his big headphones, smoking his cigarettes and becoming the silent witness to his downfall. Cristina and Tristan wander a hot and polluted Santiago de Chile, both searching but unable to find each other.
Three of us saw this film with no prior knowledge of it and were utterly enchanted - it's a slice of modern Chilean life with quirky distractions and interesting personality portraits. The feel, look and sound of the movie draw you into the world of the characters and you'll feel like you've spent 2 hours in a Santiago park under the hot summer sun.
