    • Synopsis
    • While his mother talks to him in an unknown language and cleans with discipline his father's military boots, a 6 year old boy holds a bloody knife in his hand and looks, on his other hand, at his dead turtle.

      The other characters in this short stories have a particular rarity that distinguishes them too. Like the girl who stole the superhero’s suit from his brother, leaving behind the princess’s dress given by her mother. Or like the pre-teen boy who follows a car that gets far away while he’s cycling faster and faster at midnight under ashes falling from the sky.

      They are characters who live uncommon realities and stand in front of crossroads which can change everything, with an intensity unlikely in long stories.

      Even the strange might turn terrifying. Like the world without exit where a thin man searches tireless for a bit of water, finding only dusty and empty places. Or, like the inquisitive look from the giant boss at the office, a boss that screams something incomprehensible, no matter what is inside the folder presented to him.

      Nothing is as simple as it seems, but inside this new ecuadorian directors points of view, everything could happen. In every project prevales the need to reinvent and transform reality through a unique style.

      Five vainishing points, five narrative experiments that converge in this mosaic film, in this object of virtual tridimensionality, built to be seen from different points of view.
