Winner of "Best Film" ("Mejor Película") at the 2009 Cartagena Film Festival.
Teenage Juan crashes his family's car into a telegraph pole on the outskirts of town and then scours the streets searching for someone to help him fix it. His quest will bring him to Don Heber, an old paranoid mechanic whose only companion is Sica, his almost human boxer dog; to Lucía, a young mother who is convinced that her real place in life is as a lead singer in a punk band and to "The One Who Knows," a teenage mechanic obsessed with martial arts and Kung Fu philosophy. The absurd and bewildering worlds of these characters drag Juan into a one day journey in which he will come to accept what he was escaping from in the first place, an event both as natural and inexplicable as a loved one's death.

I feel that the movie shows everyone has company but they all needs someone for help.. Juan needed a help to fix his car. The old man has a dog but he need someone to walk his dog. The girl has a baby but she needed someone to babysit him when she wanted to go out. The mechanic has his hobby for martial art and movie but he needed a companion to enjoy with. When Juan got help for his car, he indeed helped everyone who he met to get his help. He walked old man's dog and lost the dog and actually found a new home for the dog and released old man from his responsibility and worrisome about his beloved dog. Juan also did babysit and actually kept the girl company. He also accompanied the mechanic to watch the movie. When he came back home, he took care of his brother. This movie shows very subtle but interesting aspects of simple life through various people and their situation.
