Barcelona. Sebas, director, receives a commission: Ojos del Mundo, a foundation which helps the blind, needs a video to illustrate its work. They want to document how their doctors restore eyesight to patients in the Bolivian Plateau.
Sebasmeets Gabor whilst looking for a cameraman for this commission. Gabor had been Director of Photography until he lost his sight ten years ago filming a documentary in the Amazon.
As he gets to know him, Sebas realises that Gabor not only has a great visual memory and wide experience in filming, but also still dreams of filming again.
After a little research with film people and experts in visual matters, Sebas offers Gabor a place in his team as Director of Photography.
Filmed on the Bolivian Plateau, the documentary portrays how they both overcome the vicissitudes of a complicated shoot. How Gabor confronts the matter of his blindness. And a story of friendship between them both starts to develop, not without a sense of humour, emotion, and why not, the logical conflicts between a director and his nearest ally.

My name is Sebastián Alfie and I was born in Buenos Aires. I studied cinematography with the director José Martínez Suarez in Taller MS. At the same time I worked as Assistant Director in several short films, amongst them "The Country Doctor" in the New York Film Academy. My first three short films, shot in Buenos Aires, were awarded prizes in local and international festivals.
In 2001 I moved to Madrid where I currently work in cinema and advertising. In 2004 I took part in the Berlinale Talent Campus and in 2005 I directed my first short film in Spain. I worked for three years as a professor of Short Film Production in La Factoría del Guión. I am working as a scriptwriter in a number of projects and I have just finished the script for my first fiction feature film.
