Jorge (Jorge Jellinek) still lives with his parents at the age of 45. He has been the film programmer and technical support at the cinémathèque for 25 years. He also has a news show at a Montevideo radio station where he conducts interviews and talks about movies with filmmakers. Jorge’s life is consumed by movies. Because attendance is down, the cinémathèque struggles to make a profit and shuts down, leaving Jorge unemployed. With no other skill, for the first time, he is forced to change his way of life in order to adapt to the new world he faces. In the end, maybe the movies will help him survive.
