Private Project

Leo

Leo, a 26-year-old Dominican, who is in a session with his psychiatrist, who’s about to give Leo a diagnosis, the answer he has been looking for, his hysterical mother comes in to scold him, interrupting the session. Leo, dissociating, writes to his partner to feel calm but instead impulsively breaks up with him, for no reason. Then, Leo wakes up frustrated and finds himself in his mind, and transforms it into a bedroom. Inside it, after an inner sense of confusion, begins a journey to discover the answer he has waited for so long.
