Synopsis

All through the night until daybreak, Argentinian writer Alberto Laiseca answers questions he posed to characters in this books, weaving a dialogue between characters and author. In this Borgesian game, Ignasi Duarte—a paradoxical and almost invisible interviewer—creates a space dealing with fear, death, love and myth, not forgetting the taste of beer. This literary huis clos is also a physical one, filmed in the enclosed space of a two-room apartment, like a mental space, with the camera focused solely on the writer, until the final swing.
