The beauty here is that throughout this often hilarious story, Borensztein has been handling all of the themes and serious subject matter in a short and sweet manner, tackling heavy subjects in an intelligent and entertaining way that is both illuminating for the audience and Roberto - twitchfilm
In Buenos Aires, the bitter and methodical Roberto is a lonely man and the owner of a hardware store. Roberto collects bizarre worldwide news in an album as a hobby and his acquaintance Mari has an unrequited love for him, but Roberto is always evasive. One day, he sees a Chinese man named Jun being expelled from a taxi while he is watching airplanes land and he helps the man to stand up. Jun does not speak Spanish and shows a tattoo with an address on his arm. Roberto heads to the spot with Jun and discovers that the place belonged to Jun's uncle who sold it three and a half years ago.
Roberto goes with Jun to the police station, to the Chinese embassy and to a Chinese neighbourhood to seek out his uncle but it is a fruitless search. He lodges Jun in his house and after a series of incidents, finds a delivery boy to translate Jun and he learns the dramatic story of his life.
