“This plucky and effortlessly cool black-and-white film from newcomer Alonso Ruiz Palacios follows three restless teens during the student strikes of 1999. Federico and Santos are roommates in Mexico City, students ‘on strike from the strike’ now that their university has been shut down, when Federico’s brother Tomás arrives. Looking to kill some time and their boredom, they hit the streets of the city looking for famed rock star Epigmenio Cruz, who once allegedly made Bob Dylan cry.”—AFI Fest. “A coming-of-age comedy which pays homage to the French new wave.”—Indiewire. Best New Narrative Director, Tribeca Film Festival and Audience Awards at the Morelia and AFI Film Festivals. First feature.
