A film that was born as a result of four intense months of filming with exclusive access to ICUs, residences, ambulances, funeral homes, firefighters, police checkpoints … where no one else could enter. A unique historical document that shows everything that we could not see during the lockdown.
Madrid has been one of the hardest hit regions in the world by the covid pandemic. When the state of alarm was declared, Hernán Zin came out with his camera to portray it from all fronts, a unique document on the pandemic that puts a name, face and history to the numbers of victims published every day in newspapers. A film loaded with humanity that tells us everything that we couldn’t see during the lockdown.
A tribute to all who have fought to face it.
