Eric se ha encerrado en casa para descubrir algo importante. Ali, que le trae una pizza cada noche, es una conspiranoica. A ellos se suma Daryl, amigo de Eric desde que estudiaban informática. Eric los convence para que se queden trabajando en un proyecto informático que hará que toda la humanidad sea mejor. El problema es que Eric tiene una hermana que se casará en las próximas semanas. Eva no está dispuesta a que nadie le quite ni un gramo de protagonismo. La investigación se convierte en una reclusión contra el mundo exterior. Y el mundo exterior los empieza a asediar como si fuera un western.
“In Wolfenstein, Jordi Casanovas talks about two great hobbies: that of the computer explorer and that of the paranoid creature who feels harassed by the evil forces of politics and capital. Locked in the first one in an apartment of less than 30 square meters, isolated from the world, man tries to provoke the machine with absurd hypotheses with whose answers he will formulate metaphysical predictions with a view to an alleged ultraterrestrial happiness. The paranoid girl, for her part, has managed to put forward a syncretic doctrine for the salvation of humanity. Without contact with reality, both will sacrifice their immediate neighbor and both will engage in a combat as chimeric as it is candorous. “
