One witness. One camera.
TV reporter Angela Vidal (Manuela Velasco) and a cameraman follow a team of fire fighters to answer an emergency call from a building in Barcelona… but the mission turns into a nightmare. A zombie movie in the vein of The Blair Witch Project and Cloverfield – everything is seen through the shaky lens of a handheld camera. A group of people are trapped inside a creepy building, but the confusing and almost nauseating images, along with the constant screaming, make it hard to identify with and relate to them. Boredom sets in more often than fear.
