Director Statement

This film is an allegory of a universal, sentimental pattern, expressed in a rather extreme way: relationships that start off very promising and strong and then peter out in the end. In Spanish we have a couple of sayings for that, my favourite is "de calvo a tres pelucas", which literally means "from being bald to wearing three wigs".
Nonetheless, even though things don't follow according to the plan, these relationships, due to their intensity, always leave an imprint in us and it is beautiful to know people and the dynamics we set with them are able to change us to some extent.
Also, portraying a situation in which the main character has his moral principles overwhelmingly challenged and engaging the audience in his psychological dilemma was a game I wanted to play. I think it's always fun when a story places you in that position.
