In this black comedy, Leonardo (Rafael Spregelburd) is a prestigious designer who lives with his family in a famous house designed by Le Corbusier. Life is seemingly ideal for Leonardo until one day his neighbor Victor (Daniel Aráoz), a boorish used-car salesman, breaks through a common wall to make a window in order to “catch a few rays of sun.” Unfortunately, Victor’s new window looks directly into Leonardo’s living space. As the tension mounts between Leonardo and Victor, the film explores the complex relationships between class differences, social barriers, and right and wrong.

103 minutes | In Spanish with English subtitles
