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.
