Chile & Japan


Masaki (34) tries to get used to a new country after moving due to a great loss back in Japan. The food, the restroom, the language, the work, everything is different when it comes to his routines, and although he has a good attitude he can’t seem to adapt. His doubts and dialogues with his past will make him decide either to return or to resignate not having achieved his goals.

Director`s Vision

After working with Chavetaro, having filmed with a lof of planning for years and seeing our lives affected by filmmaking, we decided to look for a visual and narrative construction that would take over the moment we were living.
