Samuel is an 18 year-old boy who suffers a strange neurological disease since childhood. Sometimes he stops hearing, can’t see or is incapable of walking or uttering a word. Samuel has always lived in an overprotected environment until an unexpected event takes him to Madrid, where he will meet Consuelo, a girl in her 20’s as disoriented as he is. Consuelo and Samuel will develop an unusual relationship, as unusual as themselves.

Director’s statement

“Samuel has a neurological illness similar to epilepsy – something strange. But DOGHEAD is not a film about a sick person or an illness – it’s a film about... the Soul. Or whatever it is that enlightens us. DOGHEAD nourishment is the language of fairy tales: from the narrator that articulates the story to the outline of the supporting characters, reduced to their essence and who share with Samuel the subject of the film: IDENTITY”.
