:I Promise You Never to Come Back / Te prometo nunca regresar
Mexico, 2016, 88 min
By means of a voice over, we get to know a man who decides to leave everything and undertake a journey to an unknown city. He runs away from his father’s death and his girlfriend’s departure. Immersed in existential emptiness and loneliness, he wanders aimlessly, remembering passages from his life and trying to make a film.
