On the way forward, Eric is the first to notice strange voices behind the door, which are later heard by his father.
After the family’s life turns into a living nightmare, they decide to seek the help of a famous paranormal expert, Germán, and his daughter, Ruth.

He said: “It’s the kind of film I’ve always dreamed of debuting as a film director, because of the story, because of the script, because of the crew, because it’s a horror film with no complexes…
“If they had told me 15 years ago that it would be my debut, I would have signed it without a doubt.”
Speaking about the behind-the-scenes look, Hernández said: “For a few days we were scared that we would have to shoot scenes, but in the end we managed to arrive on time: we just finished filming the day before lockdown. And of course I’m very happy that I made it, that I was able to finish it and that I released it like this.”
