Moon of Avellaneda (Luna de avellaneda)
Román Maldonado was delivered by his mother in the midst of a carnival fair held at "Luna de Avellaneda," a sports and social club located in the city of Avellaneda, Buenos Aires province. He is, thus made a member for life, and the club becomes a central part of his life. The club used to have over 8,000 members in its heyday,but over the years, membership has dwindled to some 300. The place is decaying and the gatherings are hardly what they used to be. To top things off, Román discovers his wife is having an affair, and their marriage finds itself at its worst. Together with Amadeo Grimberg and Graciela, friends from the club, he must fight for the survival of the place before it is bought and a bingo parlour is built in its place.
