He clearly doesn't stand a chance with the lovely young neighbor he watches through his peephole, the closest he comes to human contact is fielding occasional threats from his sociopathic landlord and he may have just lost his last friend-an ancient television set named Kent. Just when he's ready to end it all with a powerful mixture of household chemicals, a would-be mentor appears in a most unlikely place. His self-appointed life coach promises everything Ian could ask for, but Ian is uncertain. Is his new friend a savior appeared in the nick of time, or a smooth-talking force of evil? And is it coincidence or something more sinister that brings peddlers of plasma screens pushing to replace Kent to the door just as this new influence enters Ian's very small world? As Ian is guided down an increasingly twisted and murky path, his doubts about his own judgment and perceptions mushroom. Amazing transformations and steps in the right direction are coupled with disjointed events and blurred reality. With no human voice of reason remaining in his life, he finds himself torn between the promising but alarming counsel of his would-be guide and the long-trusted insights of his old television set.

            On the verge of a forced retirement, Don Celso, an elderly office worker begins to relive both real and imagined memories from his life – a trip to the movies as a young boy with Beethoven, listening to tall tales from Long John Silver, a brief stay in a haunted hotel. Stories hide within stories and the thin line between imagination and reality steadily erodes, opening up a marvelous new world of personal remembrance and fantastic melodrama. In this playfully elegiac film, loosely adapted from the fantastical short stories of Chilean writer Hernán del Solar, Raul Ruiz (MYSTERIES OF LISBON) has crafted a final masterwork on his favorite subjects: fiction, history and life itself.
