Un film de Ricardo Larrain

Chile 1980, under military dictatorship. Three friends uphold the «Independent Republic», a utopian concept conceived by Guillermo, as a reaction to the savage capitalism imposed by the dictatorship. The other two characters, Fernando and Isabel eventually marry. All three characters’ private lives and ideals begin to shift, and Fernando in particular prospers, spurred on by his «Enthusiasm».
