Experiencing Interruptions?


Luis, a 75 years old man who left the Basque Country long time ago, is tired of his daily life: reading the newspaper, listening to the radio, watching classic movies; and all that, without having whom to share with. He gives up in front of life and decides not to take his heart medication anymore. After getting rid of it, the bell rings! He has to take care of George: a 6 years old kid full of life and curious, very curious. Is he going to give Luis back the illusion to live? Is it going to be too late? Magical Realism, Basque Mythology and much more in 15 minutes.
