Synopsis:

Santiago, a distinguished high-class lawyer who pretends to have a strong personality, lives completely absorbed by a confusing and suffocating secret that haunts him, because of the demands of his job and the life he has with his wife, with whom he has a daughter, and whose marriage he abhors.
At a social event Santiago meets Lucas with whom he quickly strikes up a strange connection. That same night Santiago contacts Lucas under the pretext of being able to contribute information to the book he is writing. Lucas notices something strange about this man’s attitude, but even though they both have aloof manner, he agrees to the meeting. Throughout the days, several situations cause a developing relationship between them, then a tense attraction will arise, which will keep them in a secret friendship. A disturbance to which Santiago does not know how to react but finally ends up accepting by continuing his intimate meetings with Lucas. Problems arise when this tension causes Santiago a nervous exhaustion and mental confusion that at certain moments makes him unable to discern between reality and fiction. Little by little, Santiago will realize how such a spontaneous thing with Lucas, who works at times as a counterpoint to his ghosts and at others as a catalyst to unleash the fire inside him, it becomes a feeling much stronger than his reasoning can control and so the rest of the characters could perfectly live in Santiago’s confused mind.

Asedio tells us about a world away from the realistic perspective in a continuous and frenetic movement. It shows us the physical and emotional sacrifice of a man who fights against disturbing shadows and dreamlike images.
