Coming of age. In Buenos Aires, Eloy is on the verge of manhood. He studies physics, helps with the family headstone business, and does advertising - handing out flyers while walking on stilts or wearing an empanada costume. When his melancholy father dies, Eloy imagines that his father visits him at night; the explanation is more pedestrian - Eloy has started sleepwalking. Things change abruptly: while sleepwalking, he falls through an open skylight into the bed of Elvira, a young woman from Barcelona visiting her grandmother. Elvira invites Eloy to become her lover and teaches him Tantric sex. Eloy discovers bliss. And his father?
When sexual fantasies come true.

What a disappointment to discover I was a sleepwalker. Dad wasn't writing in my notebook. He wasn't reading it either, because the dead don't need to read to stay informed. I know because my neighbourhood borders on the Underworld. Every day I cross the border. The angels avert their eyes to avoid my gaze.They know that if they once looked at me, they would have to tell me that one day I'd have to stay on this side of the border... forever.
Pre-credits title card: "Wherever and whenever society deems life is worthless, we must see through the eyes of Eros. In the fulness of time, it is up to Eros to restore the balance between life and death that has been tipped in death's favour." - André Breton See more
