Antonio is a man in his fifties who’s been married to the same woman from a young age, with whom he has a grown-up son and a job where he’s been promoted to manager. One day, Antonio seems to have split in two: another Antonio, a fake one, has taken his place. What really happened? Iván Thays has created a disturbing story, where the normal life of a normal man is unflinchingly revealed: Antonio’s dull hatred of married life, his failure as a parent, his resentment towards his father, his invisibility at work and the absence of life’s meaning.
