Mala onda is a pitiful chornicle of a trip though the excesses of cocaine, sex, marihuana, and alcohol against a backdrop of cynicism, pain and numbness. Martias Vicuna is a member of the elite in the 1980s Chile, who gets sick of the political situation at the same time as he tries to find himself.
