AzulOscuroCasiNegro is a state of mind, an uncertain future, a color that changes depending on the perspective from which it is being seen. Jorge has inherited his father’s job after this one had suffered a cerebral infraction. However, he fights against what it seems to be an inevitable fate. In the last years he was making an effort to do his job, caring for his father and finishing a university degree. Now he is striving to find another job.

Through his brother Antonio, he meets Paula, with whom he enters into a strange relation that will drive him to stop feeling responsible for anything and to confront with his desires and ignore what other people expect from him. Then everything would be different… or no.
