Tagline: A bum attempts to make the greatest Sci-Fi film of all times with only a few bucks and a home video camera.
Synopsis : Since he was young, Lumi has had a dream: to make the best Sci-Fi film of all ages. To fulfill his dream, he insists on filming cheap short movies with his VHS camera, starred by dinosaurs, vampires, and invaders from the center of the Earth, believing they will lead him to lifelong fame and fortune. Lumi seduces a blind girl -Lourdes- and then her best friend, Natasha. With both girls, he lives a secret and passionate romance. At the same time, he convinces his childhood psychotherapist to act as the villainess in his epic feature-length film, which will be produced by a textile factory owner. Lumi ends blinded by his greed and his low instincts, and nothing comes out as he planned. Lumi's mother loses her mind and obsessively searches for Lumi's father, who she has seen only once in her life.
