SINOPSIS

Camila y Marcos, best friends since their childhood,
meet again after a long time without seeing each other.

Marcos, who is completely isolated from his past, lives in New York and combines theatre projects with his teaching job in a drama school for children. On the other hand, Camila, who has worked for several years as a cruise ships singer, feels her life has come to a standstill, so, looking for a change, shows up in New York by surprise. They walk together in their own introspection but they are not aware of who they really are, since, despite the passing of time, they still hide in the characters of their peculiar games that they use not to confront maturity. Camila’s arrival will become a journey of acceptance, redemption, and personal growth for both of them.

As a mirror-like representation, this movie constitutes a piece of reality which, as life itself, is observed through different perspectives and it makes the viewers see themselves reflected on them. The audience can relate to this movie in the sense that not only can they find aspects of their own lives that they already know and can recognise, but also new ones. The movie brings about a varied and enriching dialogue about friendship, maturity and about oneself.
The plot takes place in New York, where two friends meet again after not having seen each other for a long time. Even though, at first, this movie may seem like the typical story of a couple in love in New York, as you progress to the film we discovered that the history is far from that common place. With Camila’s arrival, the audience goes all over the most tourist places in New York to, then, become immersed in the stories of the characters themselves to the point that the movie succeeds in making the viewer forget about the location and experience this city through a different point of view.
The main characters are children of today’s society, they brag about their adolescence and hide behind its false ceiling because they do not want to face their own identity. Isolated, they move around this big city as if it were just another game.
Based on the North American Mumblecore, being low budget, with non-famous actors, naturalist dialogues and performances, filled with improvisation, long scenes, and shooted in handheld. It doesn’t try to create anything new , but to pursue American independent cinema’s ethics and aesthetic values whose , freshness , reminds us of the Nouvelle Vague.
The characters share a friendship that exists beyond fiction, and the movie shares some experiences of the actors themselves. The casting was based mainly by the complicity between the main actors and their assuming of the risk that was to be a subject to a non-written script based in many of their real experiences and in improvisation sessions proposed by the director.
