The passing deaths

Written and directed by Agustín Banchero


Felipe and Manuela are going to be parents for the first time. They feel odd, everything is new and they are not sure of anything. Felipe, gripped by fear, leaves home and hides in a bedroom community at about thirty kilometers from the capital city, embarking on a journey immersed in his fantasies and fears.

Through several stories that take place in different times, Felipe faces an imaginary family, his real family and the memory of Manuela. The characters in each story resemble ghosts, as the moment of his son’s birth quickly approaches
