The Artifice

Director: JOSE ENRIQUE MARCH.
What if a filmmaker's mind begins to lose? What if he does not distinguish between reality and fiction? All mirrors always have two sides... Quique's mind, a former film director failed, is lost. So, settle with him to help her sister Martha, an actress of limited success, and the nurse Amador.
