The film is about preparing an exhibition of a painter who does not believe in geniuses, but in the capacity of making infinite efforts, developing their skills as best he can. But where is the normal, talent, genius? Guillermo paints pictures as parts of a diary, which include sensations from colors, glare and shadows which attract attention, but also the testimony of feelings, which invade.

Der Film handelt von der Vorbereitung einer Ausstellung des Malers, der nicht an das Genie glaubt, sondern an das Vermögen, unbegrenzte Anstrengungen zu machen und seine Fähigkeiten, so gut er kann, zu entwickeln. Aber wo ist das Normale, das Talent, das Genie? Guillermo malt Bilder wie die Teile eines Tagebuchs, das die Empfindung aus den Farben, dem Licht oder Schatten umfasst, was Aufmerksamkeit erregt, aber auch Zeugnis der eindringenden Gefühle ist.
