Two amongst Many.

A pandemic has Esteban isolated, separated from Alan. His days go by staring at the buildings around him from the rooftop where he lives, learning how to play the guitar, and maintaining his relationship with Alan through video calls, but isolation has no end in sight, and reality eventually catches up with them.
