The noise of a braking is followed, immediately, a quarrel in a strange language. The outbursts, which sound resounding in that foreign language, accompany a delegation that, in addition to facing the driver of a striking 4×4, raffle a small motorcycle in a pedestrian crossing of the General Bravo street before facing his triumphal entry into the Literary Cabinet. Another cry, then, gives meaning to the moment: "Cut! Well done!" ("cut, well done", in English), is heard from the lobby of the building and, suddenly, a large number of operators runs in all directions to protect the actors from the rain, relocate the extras or help the cameras to return to their posts.
