The disappearance of Juan is an excuse to tell the story of each member of a group of friends. With a slight, everyday comedic tone, this drama tries to reflect the collective unconscious of a generation youngsters from the city of Puerto Madryn.

Competition / Argentine Official Competition
Premier mundial

Set in Puerto Madryn and far from whale watches, this first feature presents a carefree generation of locals living the day-to-day, without many projects ahead of them. With a cast that combines professional and non-professional actors, the film, which stands out for the way it’s directed, tells of the different interpersonal relationships among a group of friends: their romances, jealousy, competitiveness, courtships, fights and disappointments, articulating great moments of humor –built from some memorable dialogue– with others of a sharp tone, in which a critical point of view appears to reflect on serious generational and contextual issues. Consistent with the perspective brought forward throughout its narrative, and as the title foreshadows, Juan, the young protagonist, will face a dramatic outcome. VB
