My nephew Luis lives in Madrid, where he has a steady job, friends and family.  But for years, his main vital need is moving to Canada, specifically Toronto. He has never been to Canada, and he does not know anyone there. He does not speak English or French and has no expectations of getting a job in Toronto. An inexplicable urge has made Canada his lifeline.

Despite his determination, whenever he is about to leave, even with the flight tickets purchased, something systematically happens. Unexpected events that occur again and again delayed his departure. So his departure for Canada, is becoming a chimera, in an increasingly symbolic and less real goal.

I reflect on this real event in a short frame by frame animation movie. This film takes as a starting point, one of these unexpected events: his girlfriend broken arm that need treatment and care in Spain.
