2023 | Color | 143:00

The fates of an eloquent politician; his advisor, a disenchanted journalist; and the attractive owner of a beauty salon whose walls hide a secret, are intertwined in a hilarious story (based on the novel by Hugo Hiriart) about our convulsive present. The characters aren’t rooted in any particular person; together, though, they capture the spirit of our times.
