Written & directed by Aarón Fernández Lesur ("Used Parts"). On the desolated coast of Veracruz, Mexico, 17-year-old Sebastián takes over running his uncle's small & cozy rent-by-the-hour motel. There all by himself much of the time, he meets Miranda, a regular customer who comes to the motel to meet a lover who always keeps her waiting. There together with time to kill, Sebastián and Miranda begin to get to know each other, and an ambiguous game of seduction begins between them. Official

Fernandez is astute in the way he fills the empty hours on screen. He sets a slow steady rhythm and embraces lingering shots and long silences to catch the way the days are lazy about unfolding, especially for Sebastian.
Eventually you begin to wonder what these series of standstill moments represent.
The movie has a small story but a big theme; the theme being experience, and it conveys the emotions and moods of its characters by taking things nice and slow.
