(Original Titile – Sin otoño, sin primavera) 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.
