Film about Our ideas about reality are always erroneous and balance on the verge of individual fiction. The idea that we are in every moment, contact, step, in every thought - just moving between the worlds in the style of improvisation? Statics and preparation are not possible. What can we rely on? We believe that gender, age, social status, and education are color. In this maze of realities ... or is it just the edge of her mysterious kaleidoscope?

We swim in an ocean of inconceivable life, we vibrate and we soar in its diversity. Encountering one another on the flow of waves, we get closer, we unite, we move away and fall part. Who are we for each other? Sometimes a single meeting can change everything. Who are we in this stream of conversations, breaths, glances and meaning gaul silence? Our bodies vibrate, speak with one another, but do we really listen to these sounds? All living creatures radiate: a flower is interconnected with a bird, a dolphin is communicating to humans in an entirely different way - that makes up an intricate fabric of reality. But who are we? Do we share a common reality, or does each one of us perceive their own piece? Do we then connect only to share a moment in common?

No será fácil explicar esta muerte. –Esta es una casa de libertad, y aquí la gente viene por su propio pie, hombres y mujeres. Una casa honesta, en la que buscan el amor que no reciben… el amor que no son capaces de dar… o de pedir. Más que una casa, es como una iglesia, al que pide cobijo, le damos consuelo, al que pide confesión, confesión encuentra. Todo lo que usted pueda imaginar, es posible tras estas puertas. –Pero el marqués es un buen hombre, y muy importante ¿Qué vino buscando aquí? –Pregunte a sus hombres comisario, lo que hacemos aquí…
