The Perfect Day

Unknown Premiere

Mexico | 12 MINUTES | Spanish |


A black comedy about a man whose plan to end his life in a blaze of glory goes strangely awry. Sergio has dreamed all his life about having a tragic death and sharing it with someone he loved. But he was never very lucky with women. And just before the great moment, Sergio is interrupted by a phone call that takes him away from his goal. Born in Mexico City.
