Synopsis : Young Lumi was born in a small town, a town without a movie theatre, but he fell in love with movies by watching them on TV. His favorite film was one about Martians destroying Earth with their flying saucers, titled “The War of the Worlds.” His dream was to make a movie like that, a film about flying saucers attacking the city of Buenos Aires. When he was a teenager, he moved to the big city. There he lived in the streets and in squatted houses, but he never stopped making movies, very cheap, with sets made out of garbage, using actors and actresses found anywhere. He was anxiously waiting for the moment to become rich and famous for having made his great film about flying saucers. During the shooting of one of these films, Lumi fainted. At the hospital, he learned that he had a brain tumor and he only had a few months of life left. Even then, having no job, no money, no girlfriend, being ill and on the verge of dying, Lumi was not discouraged. He spent his last weeks of life making his dreamed movie about flying saucers, whatever it took.
