For Francisca and Andres, moving in together is the beginning of a new life, littered with idealistic expectations. However, like the towers of boxes that they cannot seem to unpack, their pasts remain a constant presence in the new domicile. The visit of an estranged father, the appraising looks of an ex-spouse and indiscreet behavior at a dinner party, all chip away at the idyllic picture the love birds had conjured for themselves. Suddenly, there are signs of quiet disappointment evident as they go about their routine activities.

This is the North American premiere of the debut feature of director Nayra Ilic, one of a promising new generation of young Chilean filmmakers. In this extremely capable and self-assured work, Ilic does not shy away from letting the actors have their moment. There is a simplicity in the way quiet moments and awkward silences are captured, allowing audiences the rare treat of understanding what the characters are thinking without their having to say a word.
