    • Synopsis
    • Patricio and his friends are university lecturers. They are approaching 40 but they feel about 20. Thrown into an existence of anodyne conversations, television programmes, videogames, punk, superheroes and social networks, they struggle to find meaning in a life that sometimes refuses to have any.
When his daily routine is punctured by an unusually aggressive student, Patricio is forced to face his values and fears, and he will have to decide whether to continue to suffocate in a quiet but jejune life, or to take the radical turn he always wished for.
