    Starring: Daniel Hendler, Jorge Temponi, Alfonso Tort

    In Spanish with English subtitles.

    Three slackers in suburban Montevideo go about the weekend doing almost nothing. Leche (Daniel Hendler), worried about a foul premonition, should be studying for his Italian language exam, but is more concerned with hitting on his teacher; Javi (Jorge Temponi) can’t wait to get rid of his job announcing sales for the local convenience store from a car with a loudspeaker strapped to the roof; and Seba (Alfonso Tort) is mostly worried about what film he should rent from the local video store. No one has anything important to do, other than to survive the weekend.

    Tres jóvenes del Montevideo suburbano pasan el fin de semana haciendo casi nada. Leche (Daniel Hendler), preocupado por una premonición que no huele nada bien, debe estudiar para su clase de italiano, pero está más ocupado en enamorar a la maestra; Javi (Jorge Temponi) no puede esperar a largarse de su trabajo anunciando ofertas por un altavoz desde el auto; y Seba (Alfonso Tort) está más preocupado acerca de cuál película conseguirá en la renta de video del barrio. Nadie tiene nada importante que hacer, además de sobrevivir el fin de semana.
