Near the western end of the capital city, among the low houses of Liniers and Mataderos, several friends get together to remember one who is no longer there: La Oruga. They search his things left in the mezzanine of a house he had squatted in his last days, before his mother would take him back to Tucumán to “slow down”. They remember stories of recklessness and drugs featuring themselves and La Oruga as an extreme character, an exaggeration that causes both amusement and preoccupation. They decide to take a trip to Tucumán. An unexpected and definitive problem arises as they organize the trip: a reminder of what lies in wait for that behavior they brag about. The trip now has a different motive, it’s a rite of passage and a reminder that time doesn’t stay still. With humor and room for contemplation, Maxi and Ariel film their adventure as witnesses and travelers; they reunite with their friend, and remember those who were lost in the way, like Christian.
