2019, WaZabi Films, 106 min, Spain/France, Dir: Aritz Moreno

"Would you like me to tell you about my life?" Editor Helga Pato (Pilar Castro) is approached with this disconcerting question during a train journey. Her seatmate turns out to be Ángel Sanagustín (Ernesto Alterio), a psychiatrist who specializes in personality disorders. During the trip, Ángel tells her the sordid and delirious story of the worst clinical case he has ever faced: Martín Urales de Úbeda (Luis Tosar), an extremely dangerous and paranoid patient obsessed with garbage, among many other things, as an instrument of control. This fortuitous encounter will irremediably mark the future of Helga and all the other characters involved in a series of unpredictable plots that overlap, layer after layer, until they reach a delirious climax.
