Young filmmaker Daniel Santoyo directs this innovative short about a new pandemic that is sweeping the world which causes some of the dead to return to life. As a journalist is filmed showing a new facility to house bodies in an attempt to contain the disease, the camera inadvertently reveals the awakening of a woman’s corpse. When the cameraman departs momentarily, the recording unintentionally continues. This ‘film within a film’ sets up an exploration of relations between the generations, as the limits of sacrifice and the responsibility for death are explored.

Proceeds from the Solidarity ticket will to go to Cuban film institute (ICAIC) projects including restoration of classic films.
