A new relationship, a new job, and a new project. For Julio, these three events mark the chaotic fall into love, lies, intrigue, books, and more books. His new girlfriend Laura is a concert flautist, while the project is an apocalyptic photographic novel, which he is making with an old friend. His new job is working at a bookstore, where Julio soon discovers how easy it is to steal books as he pleases. This illicit pastime complicates his relationship with his girlfriend, with his project and his work, revealing that perhaps it’s not just the photobook that is apocalyptic. The film has enjoyed successful festival screenings, including BAFICI and the San Sebastián International Film Festival.
