Brief synopsis of the project: 

They have been lucky, the camp site is located in a forest with an imposing landscape. The birds are singing gently and, luckily, there aren't many tourists. Nevertheless, Carmen and her husband Rafa aren't able to enjoy their holidays. The visit of Carmen's mother and sister causes a sham sustained by trivial conversations and supposed family affection. So much natural beauty becomes menacing, Carmen will try to defend herself and to escape as she can.

Notes de production: 

KL audiovisual was born in Córdoba, Argentina, in 2008, to incorporate a team of emerging professionals within the framework of independent cinema which is developing in the country. The main artistic proposition comes from its members' work, and bets on local talents and on the search for an indentiy able to develop and encourage te cinematographic creation. We essentially bet on the auteur cinema.
