Luis is living out an idyllic fantasy in an online video game; his hunky avatar is happily married and with a newborn baby. One day, Luis’s real wife Anna insists that he choose between reality and fantasy. Will Luis choose Anna, and abandon his avatar wife and child? His emotions hover in some state of limbo between the real world and the virtual. A love triangle revolved around fantasy, commitment and identity.
