Josh is back in Buenos Aires for the second time. Even though the reason for this trip is a rather vague photography project, the young man spends his time trying to contact his ex-girlfriend, with whom he has completely lost touch. Since his attempts are fruitless, he begins behaving in an increasingly alienated and frustrated way; he gets into a relationship with Anna, another American who is living in the same apartment, and with Roger, a local musician.
