The Other (El Otro)

Synopsis (momentan nur in Englisch verfügbar)
A run of the mill, one-day business trip to the country becomes another journey: Upon reaching his destination, Juan Desouza discovers that the man travelling at his side is dead. Secretly, almost like a game, he decides to adopt the dead man’s identity, inventing a profession for himself, finding a place to stay: the possibility of not returning. In his new days off, in a state of availability, the man undertakes, without knowing it, an adventure into nature, into the rediscovery of his tastes, his basic instincts, trying to grasp the idea that the life dealt out for him, and he chose to live, is not the only one possible.
