    Pepe has left the psychiatric hospital after serving time for stealing to work. Only the solidarity of Antonio, a disabled activist, allows him to build a fragile life on which to project his weak hopes. Nevertheless, his need to fit in a senseless world becomes a desperate chore. The horizon of his long-awaited “normality" proves unreachable. The relationship with Antonio interpellates his view of life, inviting him to recognize himself as an anomaly and invent a new madness in which to live.

    Jo Sol began his work as a writer and filmmaker at the end of the eighties. Initially focused upon visual anthropology, he developed diverse productions in the free format of video essay practiced in India, Cuba, and Mexico. During this period he came into contact with professors of experimental cinema such as George Kuchar and figures of the literary world such as Gabriel Garcia Marquez. From then on he’s been alternating between life in Spain and life as a nomad, which is reflected in works that combine experimental practices with feature-length documentaries with a strong sociopolitical agenda. His works strike a chord on intellectual circles and alternative creative devotees.
