After several internal political problems, a coup has left the country under military control. Quito is the last frontier, the city has been completely fenced, enclosed and sheltered. The film starts from this point and focuses on two locations only. One, the palace where the General Ponce, a cynical and cunning man who runs the party, and is in charge of the city. The second, the headquarters of a group of young revolutionaries led by Marcos and Santiago, two guys with completely different visions. Marcosis hungry for power and strength. The other, his buddy Santiago, a man that has lost all hope for a better tomorrow. The film, without any political agenda, focuses on the hours before the revolutionaries make their last attack with the goal of overthrowing the tyranny that surrounds the city. These two places and characters are woven together to tell a story that is directly ... Written by El Imaginario Colectivo

Very innovative storytelling technique.
2 March 2014 | by jason-938-634249See all my reviews

Just saw it in the theater last night. I was impressed that they managed to tell such a complex story on such a tiny budget. The set was limited to just two locations. The special effects were all in your head with the cameras cutting away at just the right moment to avoid the high cost of gunshots and explosions. As the climax approached, I realized they were doing this all with just actors, writers and cameras, so I was anxious to see how they were going to pull off the epic battle scene. Without giving away any spoilers, I have to say I was impressed by the way they did it. Theater of the mind in the theater! Bravo to these nascent filmmakers! I can't wait to see what they do with a multimillion-dollar budget.
