Man Like Me, A

A social satire dealing with the everyday life of Júlli, a young man restricted by loneliness and habit. By chance, he meets a young Chinese woman who brings much needed stability to his life. He falls in love only to see the relationship disintegrate in dramatic fashion, thanks to his insecurity, hyper-nervous state and lack of experience. However, once he manages to put disillusion and disappointment of the breakup behind him, Júlli is determined to do everything in his power to get a second chance.
