When a shipment of cocaine washes ashore in a sleepy fishing village on the coast of Ecuador, starry-eyed, bumbling Blanquito sees an opportunity to escape to the big city of Guayaquil. Desperate to sell his product, he teams up with Colombian beauty Lorna, who sees her own opportunity in the naïve Blanquito. The two hit the road together, scamming their way across the country and finding themselves increasingly in over their heads. The latest film from acclaimed Ecuadorian filmmaker Sebastián Cordero (CRÓNICAS, RAGE) finds him adeptly exploring new ground. Official Selection, 2011 San Sebastian Film Festival; 2012 Miami Film Festival.
