Three people set off on separate journeys along the same road; their disparate dreams and stories intertwine amidst a breathtaking deserted route in Patagonia. This charming, funny and moving film is a tribute to the small moments of everyday life 

This modest gem of Argentine film, set in Patagonia, conveys starkly and unemotionally what it really feels like to live in a wilderness with next to nothing. For the characters who wouldn't understand the concept of upward mobility, this is simply the way life is. The story interweaves vignettes of travelers from the same rural village bound for the provincial capital 200 miles away. One is an old man (Antonio Bendectis), who takes to the road to find his runaway dog; another is a single mother (Javiera Bravo) who becomes a contestant on a TV game show; the third (Javier Lombardo) is a traveling salesman. The journey promises redemption to one, riches to another and true love to a third. —The New York Times.
