A psychologist, a dominatrix, an aspiring entrepreneur and a film production team move with no apparent destination. The characters that make up this puzzle ignore what is socially defined as polished behavior.

In XXI century, we are witnessing the worst of humanity in many fields. The technological evolution that exists - in many cases - helps to foster ideological, cultural and material divisions. As always, what is good created by most human beings is destroyed by a few.

With our film, we would like to create a space for free discussion where we can draw our own conclusions from what we see. Being able to agree or disagree with everything, with parts, with nothing, but thinking.

The film is "old fashioned", an expression used to - in one of its interpretations - define a certain lack of behavioral 'cleanliness'. It's raw. The characters aren't nice, they don't have clear goals in front of the audience and they don't care to please. If they have any power, they subjugate and submit others to their will. Nothing new for any of us.

Should aways be like this? No. Is it always like this? almost all the times. Is it a pessimistic view?

It is increasingly important that cinema maintain a independent vision on established norms and that it be a source of free expression. And that can only be achieved with everyone's help. It is essential that this campaign is successful so that we can all continue.
