    • Synopsis
    • Inside the gated community “Altos de la Cascada”, life goes on ideal as usual, houses that seem to be mansions with great gardens and swimming pools. Separated from the reality by walls and cameras that watch and control everything, this neighbourhood is a perfect bubble into a country made a bristle of thorns.
      One morning a macabre discovery takes place: three corpses appear floating in a swimming pool. The finding affects to that gated community, which hurries to label it as an accident and to define it like a tragedy. But the revision of the last activities of the victims opens a doubt about the accidental character of those deaths.
      Below its unpollluted facade, the neighbourhood will reveal precarious like a powder warehouse, denying the belief that the prosperity is eternal and the abundance is happiness.
      In that perfect world the certainties begin to crumble and grows the sensation that the worse is about to happen.
