Lake Tahoe

Lake Tahoe

Directed by Fernando Eimbcke

Teenage Juan (Diego Cataño) crashes his family's car into a telegraph pole on the outskirts of town, and then scours the streets searching for someone to help him fix it. His quest will bring him to Don Heber (Hector Herrera), an old paranoid mechanic whose only companion is Sica, his almost human boxer dog; to Lucía (Daniela Valentine), a young mother who is convinced that her real place in life is as a lead singer in a punk band, and to "The One who Knows," (Juan Carlos Lara II) a teenage mechanic obsessed with martial arts and Kung Fu philosophy. The absurd and bewildering worlds of these characters drag Juan into a one day journey in which he will come to accept what he was escaping from in the first place--an event both as natural and inexplicable as a loved one's death. What begins as a mundane adventure quickly becomes a transformative journey exploring issues of death, family, love and sex.

After teenage Juan crashes the family car into a pole, he encounters oddball characters who help him face the family crisis he initially tried to escape. This film stars Diego Cataño, Hector Herrera, Daniela Valentine and Juan Carlos Lara II.

Cast: Diego Cataño, Hector Herrera, Daniela Valentine, Juan Carlos Lara, Yemil Sefami
