The film is inspired by a story by the Argentine writer Julio Cortázar. Gaston and Laura are siblings who live together in the solitude of a great house full of wealth and hard memories. Whispers can be heard as drawers and lockers are opened. The siblings choose to isolate themselves in secure rooms and not open the doors of the rooms from which the sounds originate. Everyday life seems to flow until the secret spreads to take up the space. Tensions are running high inside the house, while outside the popular masses demand justice for the benefit of the downtrodden and against the country’s bourgeoisie.
