To Asia

This is Irene Melis's thesis project from the Film and Television degree in Centro de Diseño, Cine y Televisión at Mexico City.

An intense ear pain has accompanied Alvaro for the last days, and concerned about the proximity of a trip planned a long time ago, has not had time to take care of it. The atmosphere of pressure from his family, the stationery store in which he works is in danger of closing, the stressful preparations of his trip, and his unbearable ear pain are just too overwhelming to him.

At the last moment Alvaro has to decide whether to undertake the journey he has dreamed all his life, or stay at home and support his family.
