A predawn murder sets in motion a series of interlocking tragedies that eventually find their way to the city morgue’s brooding Dr. Arturo Fernandez. Physically and emotionally isolated from the world around him, Arturo develops an oddly intimate relationship with the personal lives of his cases, gradually forcing him to confront his connection to the living and the dead.
Adapted from the novel ‘De Que Nada Se Sabe’, director Víctor Arregui’s serpentine tale is a dark but sympathetic portrait of one man’s solitude set against a richly textured rendering of Quito, Ecuador’s capital city.
“A murder, interlocking tragedies, and a mortician with no life collide over a sympathetic look at the issues of mortality and living.” -La Oferta
“Capped by the aching strains of its title song, Victor Arregui’s brooding, poignant film casts a society in disrepair as a poetic ode to Ecuador’s capital city.” -Twitch Film
