Caprichos is an emotionally charged journey into the whims, caprices and desires of human nature.

In a world of labyrinths and mirrors, dreams and nightmares, a parade of surreal characters invite each audience member to contemplate how far they have drifted from their true selves in the name of vanity and social acceptance.
