    • Synopsis
    • Robertina is the most acclaimed actress of Buenos Aires’s theatrical scene. We are just one month away from the premiere of 'The Golden Time', her long awaited one-woman play. But instead of addressing the preparations of the show, she seems completely out of focus. Robertina lives dettached from reality, in an altered state of anxiety that has slowly turned her succesful life into a curious landscape of absurd phobias and domestic intrigues.

      The day Robertina finally finds the strenght to face her duties, she is informed a good friend living in Denmark has suddenly gotten worse and needs to undergo terminal treatment. To the desperation of her manager, who sees how her entire career is at stake, she decides to leave everything behind and fly immediately to his encounter.

      Robertina gets carried away by a powerul drift in a place where she’s relaxingly unknown, but a ticking bomb is waiting for her at home. As she’s forced to make a decision, Robertina sees how sometimes one needs to destroy everything in order to be oneself.
