Best friends Anti and Fabian attend the Quito International School,
where Anti plays the quiet, asthmatic English kid and Fabian the
charismatic local. Fabian's eccentric Uncle Suarez lures them both
under his spell, infecting the boys with his passion for outlandish
tales and adventure. Before long, these two fifteen-year-olds lose
sight of the boundaries between fact and fiction. With confused
emotions and a tenuous grip on reality, the boys embark on a
quixotic voyage across Ecuador in search of an "Amnesia Clinic"
that may or may not exist.
A beautifully crafted piece of storytelling about storytelling
itself, " The Amnesia Clinic "explores how truth can be so very
much more fanciful than fact, and how the collision between fantasy
and reality can lead to harmful delusions.
