Plot Summary:

Fascinated by the headline grabbing true story, "Paralyzed Man in Diapers Hijacks Plane to Bogotá," director Alejandro Landes worked on the film for five years, creating a tale that joins the most intimate details of Porfirio’s day-to-day life with an astonishing recreation of his attempt to hijack an airplane. Paralyzed from the waist down by a stray police bullet, Porfirio spends his days selling minutes on his cell phone, flirting with his comely neighbor—and secretly plotting his revenge against the government in this tragicomic film.
