Camelia arrived NY for her project: a translation of Shakespeare’s work. Mysterious postcards lead her to abandon her studies, winding her way through a series of amorous detours, dead ends and new beginnings.



Born in 1982, Buenos Aires, Argentina. A year after completing his degree at the city’s Universidad del Cine, he made his debut feature film, <i>El hombre robado</i>.
