Synopsis

Salvador Mallo, a filmmaker in the twilight of his career, remembers his life: his mother, his lovers, the actors he worked with. The sixties in a small village in Valencia, the eighties in Madrid, the present, when he feels an immeasurable emptiness, facing his mortality, the incapability of continuing filming, the impossibility of separating creation from his own life. The need of narrating his past can be his salvation. The first thing he's going to do is find and convince the lead actor Alberto, who they worked with 32 years ago on that film, but they haven't seen him since, and bring him to the premiere. But that won't be easy; because the duo was particularly frustrated because Salvo did not like the actor's interpretation.
