After a nuclear attack, seven dwellers of an apartment building seek refugee in a bunker in the basement of the building where the super, Mickey, lives. He rations water and supplies among the group formed by Eva and her boyfriend Sam; the gays Bobby and Josh and his brother Adrien; Marilyn and her daughter Wendi; and Delvin. When five invaders break into their shelter wearing protective clothing and breathing apparatuses, they abduct Wendi but the survivors succeed in killing two of the men. Josh wears the only clothing that was not damaged and discovers a strange research center where he finds Wendi contained in some kind of stasis device along with other children apparently collected by the unknown men in suits. He is discovered and ends up shoots at three men and returns to the shelter. Soon the group learns that the invaders have welded their access door from outside and they are trapped inside the bunker. Marilyn and Sam get crazy and the tense situation and the lack of water ... Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

There is not much you can say about the story (though I won't reveal anything, not even the general storyline, which can be read here or seen in the trailer), but that doesn't matter that much. What does matter is the fact, that the movie can create a mood, a tension and hold it throughout. Which is a real achievement.

And the Kudos have to go to the screenwriter and the casting people. Which of course falls back on the actors chosen. This could have easily felt very cliché, but it doesn't. There are choices to be made and the actors are very convincing. You may see where this is heading (general direction), but it still has a big impact.
