A dystopian commentary, which borders on the absurd while making strong statements about security and travel, family and care. Ernesto lives in a future that would once have been referred to as resembling 1984, but which now serves as an unnerving reminder of our own everyday experience. He is searching for his missing lover, for support for his dying father, and for understanding of the connections between himself, society, family, and a government that seems to be running the machine behind the curtain.
