    • Synopsis
    • A man in chains, another younger man who dreams of belonging, and a militant from an armed group forced to commit acts of cruelty he doesn’t believe in are all trapped in a circle of violence they don’t understand. As the film’s three successive stories unfold, they bring three separate, totally unique faces to the tragic reality of war. The characters, each of them voluntary and involuntary cogs in a mechanism bigger than themselves, reveal their greatness or poverty in the “minimal” tasks they perform in order to survive. From out of this at times macabre poetry of the everyday and the irrefutable truth in details, we discover a country whose social body is sick and wounded, and yet continues to seek happiness, dream, and love.
