The reunion of long-separated individuals can lead to beautiful moments. However, reunions almost always go wrong in films. Mild-mannered Heriberto is looking forward to his school reunion even if the atmosphere turns awkward the instant he picks up slick Trujillo and a little later the beautiful Flor who – unfortunately – can’t stay off the bottle while they’re driving. The trio are en route to a suburb of Mexico City, but they are having trouble getting there because of Heriberto’s ramshackle car and his passengers’ unscheduled excursions. It gets truly painful when their mutual history gradually comes to the surface.
In the first Mexican film shot on an iPhone, director Marcelo Tobar alternates between past and present with flashbacks to Heriberto’s experiences at the seminary where, in recent years, he was studying to be a priest. There too, Heriberto proved unable to forget his traumatic schooldays.
