In this sharp Argentine romantic comedy, Uriel is a dedicated single dad who runs the family business by day. At night, he is a Jewish Don Juan and professional gambler who has mastered the art of bluffing. One weekend, when Uriel runs into his old girlfriend Gloria, who dumped him years ago without explanation, he pulls out all the stops to win her back. But is Uriel a changed man, from his "ladies' man" reputation? Or is he just not used to rejection? Uriel's frequent white lies get him into hot water and he quickly learns that his poker face may not always be the key to hitting the jackpot. he doesn't want to admit what he does for a living and tells Gloria that he is a big-time music producer who is mounting the comeback of a Jewish rocker. But with the help of a punk rock Hassidic Rabbi, this Casanova just might be able to play the right card.

Meet at the Little Theater between the cafe and the ticket booth for 2-5. If people are interested, we could stop at The Golden Port for some quick food and discussion.
