Synopsis


Up-and-coming Mexican actors Sandra Navarro (Fiona Palmo) and Daniel Zavala (Alfonso Dosal) are co-starring in a new film by a prestigious filmmaker. Their chemistry is infectious and with friendly conversations occurring they appear to be on the same page for an upcoming intimate scene – even joking about filming it “for real”. But as the scene unfolds, the director notices a subtle change in Sandra’s expression. It’s only when the crew leaves the set that Sandra confesses her discontentment, accusing Daniel of misconduct and triggering an inevitable and unavoidable confrontation. Daniel is furious, proclaiming his innocence, while the film’s producers scramble to contain the fallout and prevent the incident from turning into a scandal. Featuring propulsive thriller pacing, writer/director Jorge Cuchí’s provocative and highly topical film is both an incisive exploration of consent and truth in the post #MeToo era, and a shocking exploration of how justice is delivered in the face of social media.

Awards & Reviews


Fast-paced as a thriller yet probing as drama.
