Victor returns to Buenos Aires in order to reconquer the life he was forced to abandon a year earlier.

Born in Buenos Aires (Argentina) in 1982, Matías Piñeiro graduated from Universidad del Cine, where he later worked as Professor of Filmmaking and Film History. In 2011 he moved to the United States to attend Harvard University’s Radcliffe Institute Fellowship Program. Piñeiro, who currently teaches Filmmaking at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, is now working on the development of a short film, Porcia, and a new feature film, Ariel –a CPH:LAB project based on William Shakespeare’s The Tempest that he co-directs with Galician filmmaker Lois Patiño. His last four films are part of a series devoted to the female roles in William Shakespeare’s comedies.
