Directed by Guillermo Rocamora
This comedy from Uruguay follows Nelson, a 45-year-old member of the Air Force band who becomes unbelievably depressed after his wife leaves him. A music contest in his small town gives Nelson the chance to prove his worth again while an impending promotion in the military threatens to relocate him to a wintry new climate. Will he choose redemption or a new career path? This conflict resides at the heart of Guillermo Rocamora’s assured deadpan character piece.
