In the wake of September 11th, an Argentine journalists embarks on a road trip from Mexico City to New York as the world—and his own existence—seem to crumble before his eyes.
Mario Palmero is an Argentine journalist living in Mexico City. On September 11th, 2001, Palmero is sent to cover the attacks on the Twin Towers in New York. With all flights to and from the United States grounded for several days, he is forced to drive non-stop for three days and three nights, convinced that the Third World War is about to erupt before his eyes. Two war photographers share the journey with him: A malicious European war correspondent whose career is in decline and an old Latin American journalist who is haunted by his own scruples. As they travel across a land on the brink of conflict, Palmero is forced to examine his own life, past and present: from his childhood under the Argentine dictatorship, to his forced exile and the rising violence that surrounds him in Mexico. Soon the journey across the United States becomes a merciless examination of what threatens humanity at any given moment.
