The new collaboration between the two masters Saura & Storaro
Manuel, a famous stage director, is preparing his next show, a musical about making a musical show. He seeks the help of Sara, a renowned choreographer and ex-wife, to help him cast and direct. During the casting process, the young dancer Ines will appear as the new rising star. She will bring into the story her father, a dubious character who has dangerous dealings with the local mob. As the preparation of the show evolves, the desire to win will push the dancers to excel their performances, which will bring out passion and tension between them. Where powerful Mexican music sets the tone (Lila Downs, Carlos Rivera, Fela Dominguez), a play will emerge in which tragedy, fiction and reality intertwine.
A virus breaks out and a chilling massacre rages through the streets of Montevideo. The sick become hunters, and only calm their fever by unscrupulously killing all those not yet infected. Unaware of this, Iris and her daughter spend the day in the sports club where Iris works as a security guard. When the night comes a fight without mercy is about to begin. Their only hope of salvation arrives when they discover that after each attack the infected seem to have 32 seconds of peace before charging again.
