Documentary Description

A universal story that touches upon many of the themes that cross the modern world we live in: dislocation of people, destruction of their dreams overnight by crises they are not responsible for and their efforts to survive.

Luis Caro emigrated to Madrid in 2002, where he had to survive without his family, playing music in the underground. A year and a half later, again in Argentina, he remembered and compared this experience with the exile that he suffered with his family during the last dictatorship (1976-83). With his particular sense of humor he takes stock of the last 25 years.

The Argentine crisis is couched within the framework of a global crisis of democratic governability that has two important dimensions: the crisis of participation and the crisis of governmental responsibility. We are travelling across a country stunned by the economic crisis, undergoing a great deal of social changes since the popular strikes of December 2001.

Together with the well known philosopher of Argentina, Tomas Abraham, the courageous and enduring Mothers of Plaza de Mayo, the self-employed workers of Zanon, the biggest occupied factory in the country, and many other anonymous citizens, we observe the expectations they have for Argentina.
