A hired killer that doesn’t kill, in a film of roads, guns and dogs.

Buenos Aires. In a hospital’s top floor a Spanish man, who has spent almost all his life in Argentina, is conscious about the approach of his death. This old hired killer -rough and funny, tender sometimes-, runs away with a morphine cargo and starts a roadtrip to the north, to nowhere. A girl that he finds on the road will become his loyal squire all along this two thousand kilometres of black comedy.
