Inspired by Luis Buñuel’s The Exterminating Ange. The action takes place in a politician's villa where a large company is invited for a midnight snack after the premiere of Verdi's Othello. The company is soon being spellbound by the hand of an unexplained paralysis, and as the night approaches they all remain in the room and get ready for the night. The door is wide open, but no one is able to leave the room. Time seems to stand still in this self-imposed prison and as time goes by, the guest’s surfaces cracks. Intimate secrets are revealed, repressed fantasies acted out and enigmatic repetitions appear in this surreal universe.
