The story of a young man with OCD. Every time he leaves home, Ruben tries to convince himself that he managed to leave the house in perfect order and that nothing bad will happen when he’s away. With a real mastery of the language of animation, Frederic Siegel portrays the protagonist’s emotions, combining mundanity with surreal visions of doom.
