Synopsis

In the future, Violeta and Guillermo recall a night in 2018 when they danced until sunrise. “Lately I have been obsessed with recording parties with my friends. When I feel very happy I feel like recording so I can remember that night several days later. I don’t record with any specific purpose, I just do it to widen my memories. I record to capture moments of happiness, moments where I know we were actually happy. I want to convert the images into our philosopher’s stone.”
