A film by Neto Villalobos

Among the streets of a chaotic and charming San José, a messenger with a big blotch in the face drives an old motorcycle to the beat of glam rock. Mancha needs to stop thinking that things in life just happen on their own. Surrounded by his messenger friends that just got fired, Mancha will decide between the freedom of the streets, or the life in a small island without bikes, where Clara, the only person the seems to understand him, is going to live.
