A SAD AND VULGAR

LONER

by EFTHYMIA ZYMVRAGAKI

Ernesto as a young man discovers him self being violent and jealous when establishing emotional relationships. He got married and had a son; three years after was about to kill his wife and son, if it wasn´t for his mother calling the police and witnessing he had a mental disorder.

After many years of repeating the jealousy pattern, he reached an understanding and wrote an autobiographical novel. Now he wants to make a fiction film about it. A director, interested in his story, propose a documentary film instead. The film will track these past events and follow Ernesto´s current life. He will review his past and give his point of view and theory of jealousy. Some memories of violence will be staged with actors by the hand of a therapist, who will guide him through a regression experience. This will trigger a possible change on him
