Jean-Claude, a 71 year old Brazilian director, is making a documentary in which he puts people with phobias in anxiety-inducing situations where they face their deepest fears, for him, the only authentic, truthful image of the human being. But the filmmaker is not content to remain behind the camera: he starts to interact with his subjects, preparing them for a scene, and sometimes establishing a paternal rapport with them. However, this documentary project was never finished and the reasons for this remain a mystery.

Sin embargo, este proyecto documental nunca fue terminado y las razones siguen siendo un misterio.
