    • Synopsis
    • To what extent are you willing to confront your own human nature?
      Like an arrow charged with instinctive drive, this question enters the consciousness of the characters and leads them onto a journey that gradually takes them from armoured identities in society to the nucleus of an experience so pure in their instincts that manifests itself in their everyday routine life. The film accompanies the characters during this process, expressively grasping this experience. In this way, the scenes in the film concentrate on heightening the primitive sensibilities of the audience and delves into the unconsciousness of each spectator. The narration does not focus on reason and in no way are the characters psychoanalyzed or interpreted. The characters are shown in two different perspectives; one subjective and another more objectively. The subjective point of view uses the first of the senses, from pure instinct to physical aspects not so commonly shared. The second, in a more dialectic way, presents a severe look at ourselves as human beings but brings this out using both a gentle tone and austere sequences with less interaction between the characters. There is a search for provoking a soft irony that allows us to laugh at this nature. In any way, this gamble of emotions in general evokes the unconscious state of the spectator and for this reason “animal” scenes are used to depict the reality of human nature through everyday habits and social cravings. How would our parents, or animals, look at us after many years of “civilization”?
      We would probably be too transparent for them, yet they would smile knowing the amount of energy we put into “refining” our everyday actions that have been shared with us for such a long time.
      This is the core of the “gamble” of emotions.
