A bullet put a man very close to death. Jean-Jacques Martinod's film footage experiments in that unknown, existential wasteland, one that is still living, throbbing, abysmal. The remembrance of the events by Isidro Varga and his brother will lead us down the traced lines of fate. Sensorial, random, abstract. (MMF)
