Flama and Moko are fourteen years old. Best friends since childhood, they have everything they need to survive yet another boring Sunday: videogames, porn magazines, soft drinks, pizza delivery and an apartment without parents. But between a voluptuous neighbor, a pizza deliveryman, football and chocolate brownies, the harmony of what promised to be a placid Sunday is disrupted, and issues such as divorce, loneliness, and the confusion between love and friendship start to come to the surface.
Evoking the gently comic work of Jim Jarmusch, Mexican director Fernando Eimbcke (Lake Tahoe, Club Sandwich)'s first film is a profoundly moving and insightful meditation on restless adolescence, friendship, sexuality and familial strife.
