    • Synopsis
    • Fran, a hypochondriac man in his forties, has spent half of his life talking pills. While he waits for the diagnosis of his last pain, with the certainly that this time it will be some irreversible illness, he decides to abandon his old life and come back to his roots. He leaves with nothing but his backpack to see what the time remaining will bring him. “I´m leaving it all behind. That´s it. I´m leaving…”
      “Time, the essence of a man” is a comedy with dramatic ingredients. The personal drama of each human being in search of his own identity changes into a comedy when the main character is able to look at his own existence as an spectator.
