When the Velezes agree to buy a used Chevrolet Bel-Air from their neighbors, who've recently won a brand-new car in a school raffle, they're thrilled about the prospect of leaving Bogotá's public transportation system behind. Little do they know that, despite its glossy red exterior, their newfound status symbol is a real lemon. Colombian director Luis Orjuela helms this hilarious look at the pitfalls of automobile ownership.
