    • Synopsis
    • In an abandoned warehouse only a presence remains alive: a security guard who was told to do his job and little else. His very existence is to observe the reality of the premises from imperturbable solitude and privacy. His quiet and contemplative nature puts him on the boundary of what is human.

      This warehouse has been the destination of a film, a camera, the viewer's gaze.

      The guard and the camera find themselves, the guard with the chance of making art, myth of his life, and the camera with a protagonist, something to shoot. Thus begins a symbiotic relationship in which one finds the possibilities of the other.

      Inevitably this situation is prone to become a film, a fiction if you will, where the guard, absolute protagonist, will suffocate in his own story.
