The human surge (79' 2016)
Eduardo Williams

In Buenos Aires, Exe  loses his job and doesn't want to look yet for another. His neighbourhood and friends are looking so strange as common to him. On the Internet he discovers Alf, a boy from Africa, who also has a sad job. Later, Alf also follows another guy, Archie, who escapes to the jungle. In the exotic context of the jungle's vegetation, Archie follows the path of some ants to their nest. One of them goes out and on her path she founds Canh, a Philippine guy who's sitting over a big dirt mountain, he then goes down to his strange and beautiful city, and he also has a sad job.
