Max is a theater actor struggling to make life-changing decisions. Remorsefully, he decides to confess to his partner having an affair with another woman. But at the moment of revealing the truth, a mysterious character appears, "The Spectrum." Max alone can see this androgynous being who wears all white and speaks with an Argentine accent. From that moment, the Spectrum, who proclaims himself the "common sense", will advise Max what to do.
