Marcelino ‘Marso’ Sariego - a brilliant artist and professor - functions perfectly as an eccentric loner until he’s told he’ll go blind. Marso (a subtle performance from Daniel Lugo) rapidly has to come to terms with what blindness will entail in his daily and emotional life. He decides to use the terrifying transition period to reinforce his ties with his adult daughter, who became estranged from him years ago.
In this sometimes minimalist drama with understated comedic moments, the solitary protagonist discovers what blindness does to your identity. What remains of your former success if you cannot create anything new? Now that he only has a sliver of light left, Marso has to deal with basic problems, decline and the emotional minefield he so carelessly created when he was younger.
