Jimena and Rafa travel by train to Asturias with the intention of making a film. They are going through a life crisis and they believe that this project will get them out of it. However, as they watch the filming fail due to the absurdity of the project itself, they begin to reflect on their place in the world, on work, on cinema and, above all, on love. ‘Elogio del horizonte’ is an intimate portrait of a couple who finds in love the only possible trench to resist in a hostile world.
