Documentary film about old age that takes place in nursing homes. Under the contemplative look of a camera, the life and moments some old people face in their last stage are portrayed in an atmosphere of solitude and abandonment. These homes, and their long lasting passage of time, are the last station in life before setting out on the inevitable journey to death.

JURY’S STATEMENT – A daring and intense film, cinematographically capable of expressing the meaning of old age, abandonment and waiting for death, with no fear of voids and body decay. The jury wants to reward the two Chilean filmmakers for the high level of the whole work, from the direction to photography and editing.
