      SAOL film is a perspective on a young girl trapped in her own house and in her own life after losing her dad a year before. Another Christmas arrives, but everything has changed. She has got a tremendous Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) with a fear of leaving the house to meet other people. Her Mother, a Doctor, is trying everything to back to normality, but things are not moving on, specially living also with her dad, a 70 years old man with Alzheimer. This is a film about anxiety, about a family with no direction and how this anxiety and fear affects human relations.
      What is the meaning of life when you have OCD?
