Is a thriller that goes deep into the cannon of the best of genre film, building up from the visuals a fragmented universe that reflects the tumultuous inner journey of its protagonist. A rabidly modern movie. A modern fable.

Even though the film was released in 2017, the circa of the story-line is supposed to take place in 2012, since there's a line in which Veronica explains that she was born in 1987 and is now 25 years-old. The reason the directors decided to keep the line like that is because they wanted to pay homage to the year the first draft of the screenplay was written: 2012. See more »

Saw the movie in the Guadalajara Film Festival. I was awed by the twists and turns the plot offers.
A stubborn patient trying to outsmart the psychologist at every chance she gets. The seemingly steady plot takes brusque change of directions at every chance, until you find yourself deep in thought of the profound meaning of everything that is happening on screen.
When credits appeared, I was still deep in thought trying to get a grip of what was shown on the screen and how it wakes sensible feelings and emotions inside myself.
Very interesting, complex and revealing movie!!
Not often is Mexican cinema immersed in this type of thrillers. Excellent direction, script, and acting. Congratulations to all involved!
