The film stars Gael Garcia Bernal as Eligio, a narcissistic soap opera actor who one day is shocked to discover that his wife Susana (Verónica Echegui) has picked up and left him without uttering a word. After learning that she has enrolled in a writing program at Iowa University, he decides to go after her and persuade her to return to him. Eligio ends up arriving in what appears to be the middle of nowhere, only to find that Susana has already moved on with her life. Slowly it begins to dawn on him that it’s going to take a lot more than his usual boyish charisma and sweet talk to win her back. In theaters Friday, February 24.
