A compelling feature film set in a city that is slowly dying.

Elevator Pitch:
Eusebio, a quiet man whose job as a forensic cleaner is to sterilize after someone has died, is now facing the busiest moment in his career as the city of Lima is plagued by a mysterious epidemic outburst.

One day, as Eusebio is cleaning a desolate house, he finds an 8-year-old child hiding in a wardrobe who has evidently become an orphan. Tasked with finding the boy’s remaining family, Eusebio suddenly becomes responsible for this young orphan and will struggle to take care of the boy in a city that is slowly falling apart.

About the Production:
“The urge to tell stories, to devise a world, to give people a particular experience has always moved me since childhood. Because I am a young and unknown director, I felt the need to make an independent film that would prove to myself that I was meant for this. Ever since I graduated from university I knew that the next step was to make a feature film, so I’ve been focused on this ever since I graduated in May 2010. Now, we are very close to finishing our goal, we just need that little extra push to make it through.” – Adrian Saba
