In a Buenos Aires that seems to emerge from a long dream, the three characters of Vértice move as if they were never to meet.They are the director of a public school, a social visitor and a street kid. Each one crosses the passage of the days as if fulfilling a singular epic vicissitude, a rare liturgy. Vértice is the meeting of these three characters with a tragic background. It is, in addition, the slow return of a city at once transformed and identical to itself: Buenos Aires, with folds and subterranean secrets visible and audible from a magnificent novelistic structure.
