When journalist Manuel Cueto is hired to type novelist Joaquín Góñez's last book, his presence provokes an avalanche of feelings that bring Joaquín to the edge of emotions and memories that had lain dormant in the solitude of the last stages of his creative life.

A journalist arrives to a writer's home to help him to make an autobiography, there, as he tells his life, we can remember all his good and bad moments that caused a scar in his existence. A movie with a typical Argentinian style: great actors with a very well structured screenplay and a touching and hard story. unfortunately, as usual in Argentinian films, it is too much slow, and than can make it boring sometimes, in the same way, its enormous duration (2 hours and a half) makes it more difficult to enjoy indeed. It has very very good acting. However, its duration and its lack of rhythm mess a little the result; with 30 minutes less of film it would have been better.
