    • Three stories set in a shopping mall, a big medical corporation, a ski resort, and the rainy streets of Valdivia during winter. Cornered by the modernization that takes place in the provincial town they live in, Rafa, Daniel, and Juan are submerged in a strange system they don’t really get to understand and which makes their lives feel illusory.
