Synopsis

(One Thing Is Silence) A storythat takes place in a single night in Madrid. Two young people on the dole are in love with the dream of the same woman:  Sara. Before the dawn they have to find her and in a desperate and unexpected event the enigmatic identity of the woman is revealed – a woman who both want to know and love. Madrid becomes the Minotaur’s labyrinth, where our two anti-heroes seek not a way out, but Ariadna, to which they are both captive. A novel conceived as a story of the blues: nocturnal, litling, with a melancolic joviality and a romantic inebriation.
