    • Synopsis
    • As the final metaphor of Argentine decadence, the pathetic and useless bureaucratic system shows its most perverse side in the office of orders and citations of the Judiciary. In this world of papers, folders, desks and lever arch files there’s a very particular fauna of people working, entire generations and life stories are here together and they deserve to be heard. The Office goes deep into this government office and follows those who are in charge of carrying the citations in their journeys across the city.
