After experiencing a traumatic break-up, Spanish director Léon Siminiani decides to go on a trip in order to cure his hurt. The ideal destination to treat one’s soul and rebuild one’s spirit seems obvious: India. In this film journal, the director exposes himself in a raw, straightforward manner, while mocking his own frustrations and bourgeois guilt. Map is a film in the making, in which its creator shares with the viewer his own creative process and becomes himself the central theme.
