Summary
Ernesto is convinced he is sick. It becomes an obsession far exceeding hypochondria, and when his doctor gives up responding to his letters and e-mails, Ernesto resolves to stalk him. The fixation has its own creeping effect on Karina, the hospital secretary, who cannot resist becoming involved
