Directed by Martín Desalvo
Run time 76 minutes
An outbreak of rabies has appeared in a small village where Virginia and her father live. He leaves to assist his brother-in- law since his eldest daughter is near death due to some strange illness.
Virginia is left alone at the house and Anabel, who is also her half sister, arrives and, surprisingly fevered and weakened, sleeps all day and stays up all night. Virginia tries to reach her father but the phone doesn’t work. Cold, suspicious, strange dreams and stress affect cohabitation. Even so, Virginia starts to feel attracted by Anabel.
When, upon the death of the other sick girl, the father and his brother-in- law come back to the village. But is too late to protect Virginia. These two men must then take a drastic decision: to hunt down the threat.
