That Thing Called Love

by Carlos César Arbeláez


SYNOPSIS

The Box, Prepaid and The Happy Girl are three stories that all begin at the La Polonesa coffee shop in Medellín, Colombia on Mother’s Day Sunday. In each of the stories, the characters  seem to be guided by an inescapable destiny.  In The Box, Camila is forced to bring her son’s disinterred ashes home when the cemetery is set to be demolished. The event stirs up old memories and grudges that Camila and her husband thought had been buried along with the boy. In Prepaid, Erika gets ready to start a new life with her young daughter in Spain. Before she goes, she decides to meet one last time with a Japanese client , who turns out to have an unexpected surprise for her. In The Happy Girl, Marlon and The Happy Girl both earn money performing on the streets as living statues. But when they remove their costumes and make-up together in a room in a flophouse, they discover each other’s faces and true identities, which abruptly brings  their relationship to an end.
