Plot Summary:

A provocative, morbidly comic drama that begins during the onset of the bloody 1973 Chilean coup that overthrew President Salvador Allende. Alfredo Castro (who played the title character in Tony Manero, LarraĆ­n's previous, critically acclaimed film) is a coroner's assistant who, while obsessively wooing an erotic dancer, is caught in the midst of a cataclysmic event - and finds himself with a rapidly expanding game plan. Once again, the filmmaker invests his characters with metaphoric undertones, suffusing Santiago with a surreal visual texture that evokes the nightmarish landscape it was rapidly becoming.
