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, Larraín'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.
