Overview & Credits


Fed up with constant rejection, the provocative artist Sergio De Loof enlists the help of his friends to establish a new cultural hub dubbed "The Guillotine," aiming to secure funds through an auction. However, true to its name, the project falls apart, leaving accusations of fraud in its wake. Undeterred, De Loof decides to channel the raised funds into what will be his final magnum opus: a temporary stay in suite 951 of the iconic Copacabana Palace, a hotel frequented by stars, royalty, and the elite jet-set.
