Director Statement

Break-ups are usually painful moments: the stable atmosphere and careless feelings that could offer a tender relationship are suddenly replaced by a multitude of questions, and the insecurity that follows tends to reveal our real temper.

The man that the film follows has had no news from his girlfriend for way too long, so he is sensing that the story of his couple is slowly coming to an end. He doesn't understand it but still he seems to accept this as a fact, instead of denying the obvious. Nonetheless, not knowing why it is ending is beyond him so he just decides to go and find out why his girlfriend wants to stop it.

Unfortunately at the end of his journey, he will be still far from having answered all the questions he has in mind. In the meantime though, the audience following him might have been able to detect a body of circumstantial reasons.
