    • Synopsis
    • Toma meets Ana while they are both studying literature. Ana has a mild neurotic disorder and suffers from panic attacks. Toma follows her to every dark corner she ends up in, he fights his parents when they reject her, finally accepts being a father and marries her, becoming her babysitter, her driver, her everything. Toma appears to be in control of the couple’s relationship, when in fact he is just gravitating towards a woman he cannot understand, pushing his endurance to the limit trying to save her.

      When Ana overcomes her fears and adapts to the outside world, Toma remains alone, trying to put the pieces of the puzzle together, striving to understand the whirlwind that he has gone through.
