QUéBEC, Canada | 98 minutes | 2019

Edgar, an acclaimed travel writer, convinces his old friend and colleague, Bill, to join him on a final trip to a mysterious institute, to write the sequel to the bestseller they co-wrote 20 years ago. Weak, quiet and beaten down by time, Bill suffers a perilous stay under the control of the institute’s executive committee. An open, poetic story, with imaginary conversations, characters with fluid roles, metamorphoses and troubling discoveries.
WORLD PREMIERE.

Q&A with Federico Hidalgo on October 11th and 16th.
