We revisit the professional and personal life of the Catalan writer Enrique Vila-Matas. From the origins of his artistic vocation, oriented at the beginning to film, to his will to become a different and original writer, going through his influencial reads or his decisive encounters. His stay in Paris will allow the creation of new friendships, as the one with the painter Miquel Barceló, who will invite him to his atelier in Paris and will make his portrait.
This documentary shows his particular way to inhabit the world, author of a work that explores the boundaries between fiction and reality. With the participation of the writer’s friends, as Miquel Barceló, Ignacio Martínez de Pisón, Cristina Ferández Cubas or Juan Antonio Masoliver Ródenas.
