Just A Guy

Storyline

JUST A GUY is an animated documentary film about love. Three women share glimpses of their affection, attraction and relationship with Richard Ramirez: A serial killer and rapist they contacted after his conviction in the 80s. Through their perspective we revisit exchanged letters and emotions that are as obsessive as they are hauntingly familiar.
