October Country

Pais de octubre
This quirky, ironic urban road movie follows two young men through a semi-surreal Santiago, Chile and neighboring beach towns as they involve themselves in a deal, a taxi heist and several women who embody a range of male fantasies. These irreverent, almost bloodless young adults are part of a generation poised between a past they had no hand in making and a new world they cannot yet fully imagine or possess.
