Liso is a damaged young man, suffocating from his overprotected middle-class upbringing. Just released from a psychiatric clinic, he struggles to re-adapt to his privileged world. Failing to revive relationships with past girlfriends and his parents, he takes solace in the company of his Bolivian maid and his understanding grandma. In this affecting portrait of a man searching for inner peace, playwright and filmmaker Santiago Loza finds a beautiful honesty in quiet moments, quotidian reality and ultimately, hope. The film garnered the Best Argentine Film Award at the 2013 BAFICI Film Festival. Official Selection, 2013 Berlin Film Festival; Opening Night, 2013 Latinbeat Film Festival.
