    • Synopsis
    • Lucia, a young, lonely and depressive Chilean, who has just arrived to live in France, receives anonymous messages in Post-it papers stuck on the wall of her studio that say, “I was waiting for you Lucía”. She will try to decipher who is that secret messenger.
      Scared and confused by what happened to her, she dreams of a man who pursues her. Her constant feeling of emptiness and the strange moods in which she has been immersed had led her to desire the undesirable, to discover her most hidden and strange passages. In the dream, the man reaches her and when they fall, the man’s fist hits the ground generating a loud noise. She wakes up, the noise of the dream mixes with the sound of someone knocking on her door. As if she had invoked him, at the door appears the man from her dream. Lucia makes him enter without letting him say a single word, telling him she was waiting for him.
      Uncertainty surrounds the small apartment. The Man feels that something will happen. Lucia offers him a glass of Chilean wine. Suddenly the Man faints and when he opens his eyes he can hear the voice of Lucia. Afraid of the situation, he leaves the small apartment. Once on the street he realizes that he has Lucia’s post it paper in one of his pants pockets. When arriving at his house he realizes that, while he was unconscious, Lucia had shaved half his genitals.
      The night cleans the weird situation and the arrival of a beautiful morning full of light, makes it feel as if nothing had happened. Before leaving home, Lucia writes something on a post-it paper that she then pastes on the wall of her studio. When she returns home, she notices that there is a piece of paper stuck on the wall. It says, “I was waiting for you Lucia”. Scared, she looks everywhere without remembering that she is the one who sticks those papers, as a way of remembering her fears or perhaps her most hidden desires.
