About the film:

World Premiere at the 2021 Sundance Film Festival. After a toxic and mysterious pink cloud appeared, Giovana finds herself stuck in a flat with Yago, a man she just me. As months pass and the planet settles into an extended quarantine, their world shrinks, and they are forced to come to terms with an accelerated timeline for their relationship.

“uncannily prescient debut…could well be the definitive fictional statement about the experience of Covid-19 lockdown”

—Jonathan Romney for Screen Daily
