Winning multiple Mexican Oscars and the FIPRESCI Special Prize at Cannes, LAKE TAHOE is a coming of age odyssey that takes place in one day. Teenage Juan crashes his family's car into a telegraph pole on the outskirts of town and then scours the streets searching for someone to help him fix it. His quest will bring him to various strange characters in a small town. The absurd and bewildering worlds of these characters drag Juan into a journey in which he will come to accept what he was escaping from in the first place – an event both as natural and inexplicable as a loved one's death. What begins as a mundane adventure quickly becomes a transformative journey exploring issues of death, family, love and sex.
