Martín P. est un jeune pianiste virtuose et compositeur argentin. Depuis sa dépression il y a 3 ans, il est l’un des patients du Borda, le plus grand, notable, mais aussi controversé hôpital psychiatrique d’Amérique Latine. Cet enfant prodige est l’un des talents les plus prometteurs de sa génération. Il tente maintenant de faire face à sa maladie et peut-être de sortir des murs de l’asile en créant et composant sa prochaine œuvre, « Enfermaria ».

Martín P. is a young Argentinian piano virtuoso and composer and patient of El Borda, the largest and the most notable but also controversial psychiatric hospital in Latin America since his breakdown four years ago. The child prodigy is the most promising talent of his generation. He is now trying to overcome his mental illness and come back to life outside the asylum’s walls while working on his new composition «Enfermaria». «Solo» tells a unique yet universal story about the obsession with perfection and creation, narrating the evolution of a human being who draws his strength from his own fragility.
