Alejandro Tazo, a laid-back and mellow Chilean with no money or friends who is interested in country music and speaks almost no English, roams through Nashville hoping to find work and meet people. Writer-director Alberto Fuguet evades the classic immigrant story with this amusing tale that explores with humor and brilliant, funny dialogues the experience of a foreigner wrapped in the textures, feelings and sensations of a strange city. With a fabulous soundtrack of country and rock music, some performed live.
