In order to portray filmmakers and screenwriters as self-absorbed in the creative process that there is no other world, no other human relationship that can compete, the director turned his camera inward. As José and Federico work on a new script, their interactions with their family disappear. The daughters leave on their own, and the wife joins a convent. When the producer is grieving the sudden death of his older son, he almost always returns to thinking about the film project when the funeral is over. The film continues to play out as an example of both the dedication and the cost of film making, but no judgments are given.
