    • Synopsis
    • Damian, a young Chilean man lives by peddling artwork around the world. He travels to Rome in search of a series of artworks that, as it is rumored, have been stolen by the Nazis during the war, and later found in the rubble. Without knowing the origins of these artworks and under the agreement to receive a good amount of money, he decides to search them with the purpose of selling them in Berlin.
      Arriving to the German capital, he contacts Santiago, his best friend and senior member of the plan. After meeting him and the other partner, they start their way in search of the missing precious artworks. Once they find them, they plan the location and time for the transaction with Kristof, the guy who’s going to buy the works. Damian let their friends know he concerns about the provenance of the works. He tells them he has a bad feeling about the plan. His partners are absolutely sure that this is the business of their lives.
      Damian and his two partners meet Kristof. A long silence, and tension permeates the atmosphere. Kristof opens the envelope that keeps the artworks. The young and rich man's face suddenly changes when he realises that the works are “fake”. A fight starts immediately and one of Damian's partners gets violently harmed. Horrified, Damian and Santiago manage to sneak away, escaping from the place.
      The young Chilean partners find refuge in a protected labyrinthine forest with a big lake. Damian lets Santiago know he has a bad feeling. Santiago tries to calm him. Damian can't help his fears and suddenly, as a panic reaction, he decides to leave Santiago, and he disappears through the forest. The calm of the trees and the immensity of the blue lake, remembers him he's now trapped by himself, trying to be someone else, between life and death.
