Synopsis

Santiago (28) still lives with his mother and has no work or real projects. To feel independent, during the winter, he decides to move to her family’s summer house in a seaside resort. His human ties in this desert place will be reduced to his neighbor, a father of a family obsessed with insecurity, and to the bicycle rider in the area, an alcoholic who wears a homemade nunchaku and demands his friendship. A black comedy with elements of suspense tells a story about casual ties that explode in a context of loneliness and boredom.
