Generación Sin (English: Generation Without) starts off with a guy. He is sending a message to his friend about hanging out. His friend responds that they’re broke, and that perhaps they should both be doing something about that. They linger for a while, and one of them finally decides to get up and get going.
This is a film that utilizes very little dialogue to tell a story. It does, however, show an interesting picture that is not all too uncommon today. This kind of situation is a worldwide phenomenon, especially in a world that’s getting smaller thanks to globalization and outsourcing. However, as it will be shown in the film, the journey of a thousand miles always, always starts with the first step.
