Every person hides behind a mask, mirroring those wearing Good Friday procession masks, with covered faces while carrying thick chains tied to their feet. A part of tradition, amateurism, fanaticism… but it could also be through a sense of guilt. Who hides behind that piece of cloth, which only uncovers a pair of eyes behind two holes?
The story takes us to Seville, Spain, where two Maltese couples meet during an excursion, where they go to attend the famous processions in this Spanish city during Good Friday. Four people, each one wearing his own mask. Each one carrying his own past. Each one with his own secrets. In every character, there are stories hidden even from their closest acquaintance. Hidden from the same person who spends their entire life with them.
This story is an interplay between realism and that which is surreal. Between that which appears, and that which is hidden. A story where one loses control over his own desires. A story in which only the eyes speak.
