– Director’s Statement / Declaraciones del Direcor:

I think that something interesting happens when you can´t take distance from the facts and the characters of a story. You must move all the time looking for your subject. It forces you to avoid being biased towards the characters. The films I enjoy always represent this personal journey.

So I decided to make this film with my family and with my friends, without having a defined plan. Shot from the uncertainty. Because at the end, and after all, that is a little which means making films: a struggle between planning and random, the idea and the reality.
