Movie Details

Desperate to escape Lima's cold winter blast after his father's recent suicide, a grieving son finds himself unexpectedly joined by his beautiful stepsister and her domineering husband in director Ricardo de Montreuil's entry into the 2008 Sundance Film Festival. Santiago has just lost his father, and now the last thing he wants to deal with is another brutal winter in Lima. Looking to escape to more picturesque surroundings, Santiago sets his sights on the inviting beaches of Máncura. Just as Santiago is about to leave, however, his stepsister Ximena and her arrogant husband Inigo show up and invite themselves along for the ride. After picking up a wandering hitchhiker on the side of the road, the hard-partying travelers finally arrive at their destination. Once there, however, simmering romantic tensions within the group gradually threaten to boil over. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
