After twenty-five years of working at the Cinemateca Uruguaya film archive, Jorge (real-life Uruguayan critic Jorge Jellinek), still finds inspiration in caring for the films and audiences that grace the seats and screen of his beloved arthouse cinema. But when dwindling attendance and diminishing support force the theater to close its doors, Jorge, who has never worked anywhere else except in film, loses his job. Once faced with unemployment, the line between reality and fantasy becomes blurred. Winner of the award for Best Fictional Feature Film at the Havana Film Festival.
