Alejandro Serna (Luis Deveze), a Chicano studies professor in the U.S., finds himself alone in Tijuana on New Year’s Eve after missing his flight to his Mexican hometown of León. During a walk, he has a surprise encounter with Ana (Kristine Veta), an attractive American and one of his former students. She invites Alejandro to spend New Year’s with her Mexican friends, a celebration that unleashes an overwhelming flood of emotions - some of them new and very dangerous. This unique look at how luck and chance can change one’s outlook on life is buoyed by outstanding performances and an engaging, dramatic story with plenty of comedic undertones.

Feature in Spanish with English subtitles. | Screening format: DCP
