Synopsis by Clarke Fountain
Carlos (Daniel Kuzniecka) won the custody of his son when he separated from his wife Negra. She was a political activist in left-leaning movements during the rule of Argentina by a military junta. When she disappears, apparently taken by the police, Carlos decides that he and the little fellow, whom he calls Amigomio, should leave the country as soon as possible. He takes off to the northwest across the mountains, traveling through Bolivia into Ecuador on foot. Along the way, father and son run into a bizarre collection of individual loonies, revolutionaries and bandits.
