Nineteen-year-old Rafael is a promising Roma boxer. His days unfold according to a regular routine – work, training, sharing a modest home with his father, but also watching an attractive 34-year-old day after day as she walks home from her job at the theater. The young man’s tenacious attention from afar doesn’t bother the pensive Cristina, perhaps because her marriage to a fellow actor seems to have lost its passion. Unpretentious, focused, and narrated with increasing intensity, the drama explores the lives of two people whose seemingly monotonous lives are quietly invaded by exciting emotional possibilities. Rafael and Cristina: two diametrically opposed worlds, two stories, but their encounter creates a third reality, however subjective it may be. The notion of what might be is all the more provocative when contrasted with reality.
