At a house party, a handsome man wanders around catching up with friends he has not seen for some years. A travel writer now based in Berlin, Andre appears to be living an exciting international life, and yet… something has drawn him back home to Santiago. As the night goes on, we realize that a tragedy binds this group – an event that was also the impetus for Andre’s departure from Chile years ago. Moreover, there is someone at the party he goes to great lengths to avoid. But she is the very person he most needs to see.

It is not what the characters say so much as what they don’t say. Their smallest gestures speak volumes. Their collective pain is never fully articulated but is all-pervasive. The weight of missed opportunities leaps off the screen making you question your own. Blanca Lewin and Santiago Cabrera give extraordinary and nuanced performances without a false note. And we are left to contemplate: if one could turn back time, would the outcome be any different?
