DARWIN’S CORNER

Synopsis

GASTON works with computers. He is very attached to the technology and still in love with an ex-girlfriend who left him. When he inherites his grandfather’s old house in the countryside, he must travel to visit it accompanied by AMERICO, a scribe somewhat depressed to feel that he´s entering the third age. The driver and owner of the pick up truck in which they travel is BETO, a guy with a somewhat murky past. The place where they are going was visited by the English naturalist Charles Darwin in 1833. There he picked up crucial information to later develop the theory of evolution.
The trip takes longer than expected, in part due to mechanical failures of the truck, but also due to conflicts between the three. They are people who are very depending on the past and the future, and this trip will teach them to appreciate the present and take a step forward in their own evolution.
