Santos (renowned Spanish actor José Sacristán), a sick, worn-down hired killer, impulsively heads out on one last assignment: a 2,000-mile excursion from his Buenos Aires hospital bed into the vast interior of Argentina. Cruising along in a vintage Ford Falcon, he encounters Alejandra (Roxana Blanco), who tricks him into taking her along. Their journey takes them through countryside that feels as remote, empty, and forlorn as they are.

Award-winning Spanish director Javier Rebollo’s third feature is neither a traditional narrative nor a foray into magic realism. In fact, it is more akin to a Borges novel, a mystery about the whims, dark places, and unknown interiors of its characters; a reflection on life, love, death, and the open highway.
