At a table in a small town bar, a strange visitor offers a man an unusual deal: one million dollars in exchange for reliving ten years of his past from whichever time period he chooses. And, when he returns to the present, it will be as though no time has passed at all. At sixty years of age, ernesto Zambrana is feeling fed up with the humdrum nature of his life. Without thinking twice about the consequences, he embarks on this extraordinary adventure which, independent of the outcome, will change his life forever. A darkly comic gem of a thriller with genius performances. Ron Wilkinson, Monsters and Critics En la mesa de un bar de provincia, un hombre extraño le ofrece a otro un trato peculiar: un millón de dólares a cambio de vivir diez años de tiempo subjetivo, en algún lugar de su propio pasado. De esta manera, ernesto Zambrana, un personaje gris y pueblerino de 60 años, se embarca sin medir las consecuencias en una experiencia extraordinaria, que independientemente de los resultados, le cambiará la vida irreversiblemente.
