Four days’ captivity in a Tragic Holy Week, when the regime received Pope John Paul II and the radio and televisión recounted and showed how Videla ate his wafer and tríed to purge his sins. In the meantime, in the clandestine cells, thousands were being tortured and killed.

The time when he realizes that he has a body made offragments. There maynot be in all Argentine cinema history, such a detailed exploration of the qualities and powers that a body may engender.
The story takes place on the desert planet "Pluke" in the "Kin-dza-dza" galaxy, where two Soviet humans previously unknown to each other ("Uncle Vova", a gruff construction foreman from Moscow, and "The Fiddler", a student from Georgia) are stranded due to an accidental encounter with an alien teleportation device.
