Many new directors have discovered ample inspiration in the existential crises that torment their own generations. This time we find ourselves in Guayaquil, Ecuador, with nine young middle-class men and women who can’t seem to find their place in the world. Each of the characters has a function in the film, but it is Lucas, a law student who has come up with his own ideology ─“the anarchy of the imagination” ─, who grabs the spotlight. His attempts to challenge authority, incarnated by a professor and political groups at the school he attends, fail miserably, putting him on a path of self-destruction.
Unable to find an outlet for his energies, he becomes addicted to sleeping pills. As the film progresses, it becomes clear the common thread of these non-linear stories is social oppression and alienation.
