Uriel, a professional poker player who has bluffed his way through life's rougher moments, has been on a real hot streak—with the ladies—since his marriage fizzled out. Happy with developing his online gambling business, being single, and raising his two sweet kids, Uriel takes a gamble and decides to have a vasectomy. But just as he embarks on his new life of freedom, he runs into his old pre-marriage flame, Gloria, newly arrived in Buenos Aires after years abroad.
Daniel Burman's delightful romantic comedy unfolds in the acclaimed director's signature style: poignant, natural, and bitingly funny. Making his acting debut, Oscar-winning songwriter Jorge Drexler leaps off the screen in his charming portrayal of Uriel, while Valeria Bertuccelli's (XXY) Gloria is the ultimate modern woman, balancing a world-weariness with the need for love. Colorful, enigmatic supporting characters fill out this bright, honest portrait about learning that in life one's poker face may not always be the key to hitting the jackpot.
