Synopsis

Un joven (?) cineasta regresa a casa de sus abuelos para hacerles un vídeo-retrato.

De eso trata el Cine, ¿no?
A young (?) thirty-year-old film director comes back to his grandparents’ house to spend the weekend. He needs to film them a video-portrait to have it when they are no longer here. It’s simple: his grandmother is in the field and his grandfather is in the woods. He places the camera and starts filming.

That’s what cinema is about, isn’t it?
Un novo (?) cineasta pasa un fin de semana na casa dos seus avós para facerlles un vídeo retrato.

Diso vai o cine, non si?
