    • Enzo a 6 year old boy lives with his mother in the year 2055. His house is buried and the air is contaminated. Laura has economic problems and could not afford to pay the home air system this month. The state air company who provides the service cuts off the supply until it is paid. Laura is absent for a few hours to pay for said supply. During those 4 hours the series runs from the moment Laura leaves until she returns. Enzo alone and with a mask to breathe will face his human needs mediated by the screens. Enzo's relationship with the screens is fluid and comfortable. For Enzo the absence of the mother will not be significant at first. Laura and Enzo as part of this fragmented society do not communicate by their own means, they have never spoken and they have problems for affectionate contact. In the absence of Laura and with the passing of the hours Enzo begins to suffer needs, is bored, hungry, feels alone and the machines are not enough to satisfy them. Enzo begins to discover his body, moves and the small space of his house is small and ideal scenario for the enslavement of the system. The media invasion achieves its purpose and seems to subject the child. But on the return of Laura Enzo for the first time she will try to talk with her Mother, a situation that baffles Laura and transforms the small place into a haven where breathing.
