Marcelo Piñeyro's emotional drama Kamchatka is set in Argentina just after the 1976 revolution. A lawyer (Ricardo Darín) takes his wife (Cecilia Roth) and children (Matías del Pozo and Milton de la Canal) to the country after the coup, and they adopt new identities. Their new life is difficult, but a visit with grandma and grandpa (Fernanda Mistral and Héctor Alterio) shows that these people are still a close-knit unit. Eventually the older son makes friends with a fellow teenager named Lucas (Tomás Fonzi).
