Every day, eloy delivers a hundred judicial notifications and is put in contact with 100 stories. Now far from the promise of his youth, he has become an alienated and desensitized civil servant trapped in an eternally repeating present. That is until a series of events leads him into the depths of the city, towards some extravagant and timeless characters, and the most profound experiences of his life. each notification becomes a domino piece that will fall with the same force as his own convictions.

El notificador seeks to explore through the canvas of fiction, why this particular line of work becomes a perfect trap from which no one wants to escape. Blas Eloy Martínez

Diariamente, eloy reparte unas cien notificaciones; cada día entra en contacto con cien historias. Lejos de la joven promesa que solía ser, eloy es un empleado público alienado, abatido e insensible que se encuentra atascado en un presente eterno. Hasta que una serie de eventos lo van guiando hacia el fondo de la ciudad, hacia una galería de personajes extravagantes y atemporales, y hacia lo más profundo de su vida. Cada notificación de eloy será una pieza del dominó que caerá con la misma fuerza que sus propias convicciones.
