A woman vanishes. Two men take to the road in search of her: they both love her. Why did she leave? Each one of them has his own suspicions, and hides them from the other one who – mysteriously – never truly becomes his rival. Neither is right – but is anyone? This sudden run away becomes the hidden core of a number of fictions that the film delicately weaves together: the secret of the heart of another woman, lost as well, many years ago; the secret of the life of a village in the countryside, governed by a supernatural incident that nobody seems to perceive; the secret of the plains, which never ceases to spread and devour everything, like the shadows that invade the world after the twilight hour.
TRENQUE LAUQUEN is an epic yet intimate and playful, genre-fluid mystery formed of two-feature length parts, from Argentine auteur Laura Citarella and the El Pampero Cine collective.
