The “infected” become hunters and only calm their fever by unscrupulously killing those who have not yet fallen ill. The protagonist, Iris, must protect her daughter from this situation, with the only hope of salvation in that, after each attack, the attackers seem to have 32 seconds of peace before reloading. The film, of 89 minutes and with a script by Juma Fodde and Gustavo Fernández, has as protagonists Daniel Hendler, Paula Silva, Pilar García and Franco Rilla.After a screening for the media, Ángel Sala, Isaac Torras and Joan Lluis Goas have explained this Friday that it is the first film they produce and have highlighted the “rare catharsis” that meant shooting a film about a “terrible pandemic crisis” when “really” it was living a pandemic health situation due to a virus.” We were fascinated with what they were sending us from the shoot.
