Synopsis
Ariel, a recent college dropout, has hopes of escaping a career behind the counter of his mother's lingerie store in a Buenos Aires shopping mall. The job does come with its perks, as tantalizing as helping beautiful women slip in and out of lingerie can be, but the tales of the shopkeepers have grown stale; dressing-room trysts with Rita can't go on forever; and Estela, his now pregnant ex-girlfriend, no longer needs him. It could grow into a comfortable routine, but with a passport to world travel and new adventures at his fingertips, Ariel seeks a life of greater aspirations. With a little "help" from Roman Polanski, Copernicus and John Paul I, his Polish passport will arrive soon enough, and the eccentric spirit of the mall and its shopkeepers will fade into memory. Ariel's certain to miss his best friend, Mitelman, and his stunning Lithuanian secretary, and he can't forget sexy Rita, the vixen of the Internet café who likes to model lingerie. Of course, long after Ariel departs, Joseph, his older brother, will still be settling scores from an office above the mall, and their mother, Sonia, will continue to run the lingerie shop. But before Ariel's dream of a new life in Europe can begin, he will first have to shake a head-spinning does of reality: his long-lost father is about to return. Ariel's father, Elias, left Argetina to fight in the Yom Kippur War but never returned to his family. Growing up, Ariel had heard stories about his father, both at home and from older shopkeepers at the mall, but the mystery of why Elias left the family shortly after Ariel was born, why he never returned, and why this seems to have left Ariel's mother and brother indifferent, has always bothered him. If the truth is to emerge, Ariel must stop running from Elias, allow his father to share his story, which includes old secrets about the mall and its shopkeepers, and, ultimately, accept a long-overdue embrace that has been lost to him for so long.
