    • Synopsis
    • Ignacio is twenty one years old. Two Ignacios coexist: the one from now, and the one from “before”. His life is divided by an event, something that broke it in half.
      One Ignacio is a happy person. He studies, doesn’t work and lives with his younger brother and his parents.
      The other Ignacio is very different and moves fast away from the other one, even when the two of them are the same person, with the same ID and the same fingerprint. He is submerged in a sudden and violent descendent road, and the fall seems to have no end.
      Something happened back then, about an year ago. It takes a while for us to figure out what was it.
      Ignacio is changing to someone silent, lonely and dark, suicidal in a way. We see that the image of this Ignacio is opposed to the other one. The happy memories from his past life, let us know how everything was back then.
      A few places composses the routine of his two lives: his house, the streets he spends his days and nights walking through, a couple of bars and the office he goes once a month to collect a certain amount of money.
      The only one who stayed close, not that much, far enough not to be violently aborted from his life is Ana, who always loved him but never felt the same kind of love in return.
      Ignacio lives alone, in the same house he used to share with his family. They are not there anymore. Neither are his friends, all the people who used to move around him. Some of them left, others were expelled, rejected by him.
      His actions suddenly start placing himself very close to make a mistake that can end with his life.
      Finally, only his love for Ana could be the only way out. If he choses that way, maybe very slowly, all the way from the bottom, could Ignacio rebuild the life he is now about lo lose.
