TLDR

It’s a world of hurt between “my house” and “our house.”

What it's about

Eduard (Pablo Derqui) loses his entire family in an accident. Then, a mysterious woman teaches him how to travel to alternate universes, giving him an avenue to rectify the past.

The take

The family dynamics at the heart of this show are given plenty of room to breathe, with many tender moments baked into the frequent little conflicts. Then, it’s terribly heartbreaking when it needs to be, ripping apart what you latch onto. Pablo Derqui is incredible in his nuance between his public face and his private face, embodying all the strands of a torn up heart. The mysterious woman he later meets is dodgy in a way that bleeds through her kind eyes and mannerisms. This series has strong performances all around in scenes that get time to shine, and a pace that answers enough questions that lead to new ones, leaving you wanting a bit more.

What stands out

Never has “I hate you” sounded so sweet. :(
