Spanish premiere

A solitary man and an unknown death. There is no funeral, nor any friends or relatives to answer for him. A municipal service will be responsible for taking and destroying all of the possessions found in his house if nobody turns up in a few days. There is a protocol for these nameless deaths, a kind of impasse in which the anonymous corpses are still alive awaiting a response to this question: Do we really die at the time of death or when people forget about us?  The filmmakers and their friends enter into the dead man’s house before this final verdict is fulfilled and they discover themselves through the deceased’s belongings and in the lives that are still buried. 

Diego Gutiérrez, Danniel Danniel
