The black night and the mystery of the sea are the setting for this boat of fishermen from different countries that appears to sail through an endless void. A place built like a world with its own laws and rhythms which no-one ever leaves. Caja cerrada tells a tale of capitalism and death, of growing alienation through a Tower of Babel of languages and disjointed experiences.
