Experiencing Interruptions?


Cristian (55 years old) sees a girl (20 years old) in a park, crying. He is going through a nostalgic moment. He recalls one of his failed rendezvous from when he was young and decides to tell the story to the stranger in the park, convinced she is sad due to a similar reason. His story is short: in his youth he met a girl and asked her out on a date, but she never showed up. He is still obsessed with her image. He is certain it was love at first sight, although he didn’t even know her name. Cristian introduces himself and the sound of his name spoken out loud in the quiet park triggers the revival of those past moments. Cristian relives the failed date. The girl he was waiting for was involved in a car accident and died calling out his name, not too far from the place where they were supposed to meet. This cry for him between life and death haunts him for the rest of his life and finally leads him to the truth.
