"La vida está en otro lado" is a graphic novel conceptually based on "The Suicides", a cartoon by Antonio Di Benedetto. The work centers around Antonio, a university student who decides to write a thesis on suicide, specifically based on the suicides of Alfonsina Storni, Horacio Quiroga, and Leopoldo Lugones. Antonio is paired with Marcela, with whom he constantly clashes when discussing ideas. The project begins to consume him and all the characters, and little by little it ceases to be a simple school paper, and becomes a dark psychological drama.
