Twenty-five years ago, a family man from Orihuela, Spain named Rate bought his first camera and started filming his wife, stepson and pets. He spent three months looking for that elusive true story that has never been filmed before. His footage of domestic scenes becomes increasingly erratic, and soon after he stops filming. But when his sister is diagnosed with liver cancer, he picks up the camera once more. The drama that he was frantically searching for forces itself into his “wild eye,” his ojo salvaje. More and more family members join him at the bedside of his increasingly fragile sister, and he directs them with a true eye for detail to move a little closer the bed, so he can get them on film. Except for a few intertitles, this graduation film consists entirely of Rate’s home videos, and director Paco Nicolás closely follows the man’s failed attempts to capture the true drama.
