Recent stories, fears and oblivion seen through a metaphor. A 30-passenger convoy vanishes in the closed circuit of the Buenos Aires underground system. Research will be initiated towards finding the cause of this dematerialization. A young topologist (surfaces mathematician) leads the investigation based on some lost maps and technical data sheets. He cannot find the whereabouts of the old scientist who designed the intricate weft of the subway web, until the unexpected aid from a young girl will ease the obtention of the first clues. Everyting seems to be futile, but a random event that will risk his life gets him into an impossible train, were he will face up the amazing final revelation. Written by
I saw this film at the New Directors/New Films festival in New York a couple of years ago. I've never seen anything quite like it! It's not quite science-fiction, yet it's as off-the-wall and fantastic as any conventional sci-fi flick. You know you're in for a new type of experience when a film's hero is the practitioner of an obscure branch of mathematics.
Any description of the plot would only diminish it. It's astonishing to think that this was basically a student project. Someone has to get this film released onto videotape fast, so that more people can get the opportunity to enjoy its metaphysical pleasures....
