Writen & Directed by GUSTAVO RIET SAPRIZA Synopsis In a dark and tenebrous place a prisoner and his guard share the oppression of a perverse system that tortures them.

An eighteen-year-old delinquent was recently released from a juvenile detention center. He returns to his parent’s old home with a clean criminal record and a new identity. However, local villagers sense an injustice in this lack of punishment; they remember what happened there just a few years earlier. Also an ambitious filmmaker has decided to follow and document this delinquent’s return to a ‘normal’ life. With the backdrop of contemporary society, where “everything is meaningless and nothing is real”, this story of maturity and guilt unfolds.
