    • Synopsis
    • The film director’s house in Santiago has a door that leads to the sidewalk, which
      separates two spaces: the inner space, the house itself, and the outer space, the
      city. There is a corridor in the inner space which has a large window that leads
      to a small patio. The wisteria, the boungavillea and the old vine trunk struggle
      among them. They coexist with a variety of birds that come down to the patio
      and drink water from a fountain and bathe in it, plus one cat that belongs to the
      adjacent houses. Sunlight comes through the window as it moves during the
      changing seasons. Inside the house, there are many objects from which the
      director takes stories that he tells with his own voice. These stories are interrupted
      when acquaintances and strangers ring the bell. The director opens the door and
      becomes interested in the strangers. He asks about their address and goes to their
      houses to knock on their doors, creating a net of links between his house and the
      strangers’ houses. This net is drawn in a large map of the city found inside the
      house. This way, a braid of characters, spaces, time and stories is built.
