Synopsis

Sergio Garces thinks himself a suave, attractive, talented Argentine man. He is in his 50’s, but he thinks he’s still 35. Down on his luck, an aging Serge Gainsbourg wannabe struggles with an acting career he can’t seem to get on track, an affair he doesn’t want, and a crime he didn’t mean to commit.
