A man and a woman are prisoners in a dream-like place. Together they go through the mysterious rooms and corridors of a Thirties grand hotel which has all the air of a maze. The director calls a “metaphysical thriller” this tale of a man who seems to penetrate his own head to emerge from the waves of the sea and reappear in this seemingly abandoned hotel, where he meets a series of characters who awaken in him the memory of fragments of life, of human existence and its ingredients. Does reality exist or is it the fruit of invention, of lies, of dreams, of desire? Subiela, an artist of memory and of imagination, invites us on a journey through realities that are usually distinct, through inner and outer, here and beyond, love and abandon.
