Argentina/Peru 2006, 96 min, English subtitles

When he learns his daughter is pregnant, Julio Cesar knows he has to take charge of his destiny. No more taxi driving – it’s time to finally pursue his calling as a tarot-card reader. In their wisdom, the cards guide him through Lima to a young prostitute, an enigmatic Argentinian governess, and the championship game of his beloved football team. A comically serious close-up look at the convoluted everyday life of a metropolis in which moral parameters have to be flexibly negotiated.
