Sofía is putting up search posters of her missing boyfriend Luis all over town. Copies of his picture surround her. Luis is one of the more than 80.000 missing persons in Mexico.
At night Sofía faces a recurring dream: Little by little her world tranforms into paper. First the birds, then the ground, her room, untill even death is made of paper.
