Genre: Drama, Psychodrama

Tagline: Basada en la novela de Gabriel García Márquez.

Plot: In this heartfelt and award-winning Mexican drama, Fernando Luján stars as a loyal family man affectionately known in a small town as the Colonel. Down on his luck, the aging Colonel awaits a promised and very needed pension plan. Every Friday, he dresses in his finest suit and walks down to the docks in anticipation of that fateful letter announcing the arrival of his pension. All the townspeople know that the Colonel waits in vain. He also knows what they think and say about him, but still he goes because his dream is all he has left. One other serious problem is that his family hungers and his wife is not healthy. Will the Colonel ever receive his answer?
