During that year the adaptation of the script is made and at the beginning of 2018 the teaser is filmed. We are currently in the development phase, finishing the capture of resources.

Synopsis

Anna, a young woman with a victim mentality, who lives wanting nothing more than to remain with her boyfriend, sees how her life collapses when he ends the relationship. Faced with this situation, she decides to leave work and shut herself in her house with no company other than the voices in her head.This leads to the appearance of her Alter Ego, the personification of her conscience. This new character bursts into Anna's life abruptly to stop her self-destructive tendencies and prevent her from falling into deep depression that could lead her to suicide. Anna feels threatened and tries to flee from her, clinging even more to her pain and convictions which initiates a confrontation between the two. In this way the house is an additional character, providing a sense of suffocation that Anna can’t get away from; nobody can escape from their own mind. The Alter Ego, aware of the house’s relation to the situation, remains one step ahead of Anna, dictating the rules of the game, immersing Anna in her past and provoking a situation in which the main character has only two options: change her ways or die.
