Asintótico, or asymptotic in English, refers to a line, in mathematical terms, that approaches indefinitely a curve, without never touching it. In this way, this short film is a reflection about realities that living close together, in the set-up of an urban space, never get to touch each other. Squeezed together, even in pandemic times, each occupant on this block seems to be unaware of its neighbours. The challenge that a gentrified neighbourhood faces is to survive the rapid changes generated by real estate speculation. Maybe is only through the awareness of the other that these changes can be slowed down, processed, and reverted.
