A film by Alicia Scherson

Play is an urban fable, bittersweet and musical. The story of two destinies that could have intertwined. Cristina, a lonely young Indian woman, takes care of a dying old man who lives in the working class neighborhoods of Santiago. Tristan, abandoned by Irene, suffers from love in the modern and middle-class districts of the city. Cristina and Tristan wander through the city, clammy and polluted. He tries to find what he never had. She, silent and anonymous, follows and observes him. Play is the story of a man who seeks himself and a woman who finds herself.
