Episódica – Rubén Villa

David, a successful therapist, is the author of a method never seen before in psychology: a machine that allows him to alter the most painful memories of his patients. His wife, Lucia, is the victim of a strange disease that will kill her in a short time. The solution seems to come in the form of Sofia; a patient of David’s who asks him to use his machine to rewrite her entire life. David comes up with the idea of tricking her into transferring Lucia’s memories to him instead. Lucia refuses, but the fear of dying and her obsession to complete her self-portrait, which she considers her legacy, convince her to accept.

David and Lucia (In the body of Sofia) manage to lead a normal life after erasing the memory of her crime to live in blissful ignorance. But erasing the memory does not erase the acts and the farce they have built begins to crumble as the atmosphere in the house becomes stranger and Lucia again shows symptoms of the mysterious illness. The only solution is to see in Lucia’s memories the truth that they omitted, which leads them to discover that these are not the only memories that have been erased and that there is a dark past that David hid years ago.

Freddy & Willington – Carlos Augusto Rojas Galindo

The envy of Yago, a fisherman, causes an accident in which his brother and his father die. Desperate, he asks to La Muerte, a lady who always dresses in white, to take him away and allow him to join his family in the land of the dead. La Muerte refuses and as punishment forces him to serve him. Since that day, the fisherman became a faithful servant of La Muerte and traveled around the world to cause wars and conflicts for her to collect lots of souls effortlessly. Yago left his native island leaving behind Berta, his only friend, a 12-year-old girl.

After 70 years of good services, La Muerte considered it was time to free the fisherman and entrusted him with the last mission of provoking a conflict on the island where he was born. For this last trip, the fisherman posed as a very important official and ordered a new and unnecessary school to be built on the island. As no one wanted to enroll their children in the new school, Yago suggested to the mayor of the island that issue a decree that forces half of the children to occupy it. Everyone on the island got upset and protested because they separated the children. To calm everyone’s spirits, the faithful servant of La Muerte promised a soccer match between the two schools, the first official match on the island.

Yago’s plan went perfectly. The inhabitants of the island were divided into two groups and Freddy and Willington, two twin brothers known for being the best players in the place, were left in opposing schools and teams. Yago was especially interested in those two children because they were the benchmark for everyone on the island. If he managed to antagonize the two twins, each as captain of his school’s team, everyone watching the game would antagonize and the island would be a battlefield.

Through tricks and lies, Yago manages to get the twins to play the game against each other, and he also gets Freddy and Willington’s parents not to be at the game, so they won’t stop them if they see the two brothers fight. The confrontation between the two brothers goes according to the plan of the fisherman and the people of the island seem about to start a much bigger conflict. In the decisive moment of the match, the one with the greatest enmity of all, both brothers reconsider the situation, decide to leave the match in a draw and leave the court. The example of the twins motivates the reconciliation of the people of the island and makes Yago resign himself to continue as a servant of La Muerte. The fisherman then decides to take advantage of his visit to hug his only friend once again, the girl who waited for 70 years for him to come back to see him again.

What Yago did not know was that his sentence had been served, La Muerte no longer wanted to use him and she made him return to his island so that he could say goodbye to Berta before she died. She also wanted Yago to take one last lesson before rejoining his relatives. In the end, the island remained united and Yago died peacefully.
