Young Lumi, born in a small town without a movie theater, fell in love with movies by watching them on TV. Inspired by his favorite, The War of the Worlds, he dreams of making a movie about flying saucers attacking Buenos Aires. Once a teenager and living in Buenos Aires, he never stopped making cheap movies and waiting for the chance to become rich and famous to finally make his dream film. But one day he faints while filming. After being taken to the hospital, he learns that he has a brain tumor and only a few months to live. Despite having no job, no money, no girlfriend and being on the verge of death, he is not discouraged. He spends his last weeks making his dream film, whatever it takes.
