Cochabamba, Bolivia. One night the director meets a woman, falls deeply in love, they start living together that same night. She asks him to start a new life in the countryside. He hesitates, she leaves. He is destroyed. Two years after the event, the pain is still there and he decides to return to their - now empty - apartment and to stay living there, which he does for a year, documenting this ritual. Conversations of the couple recorded on tape, distant noises of the city, silence. Seasons flow, a family gets bigger, a house is being built. We perceive the external world slowly entering the apartment through its windows, as we follow the evolution of a deep intimate and universal struggle, and discover connections with post-apocalyptic scenarios and other stories. A very personal futuristic documentary on the attempt to overcome the pain of lost love.
