Edo is obsessed with the disappearance of his fiancee Celia, which took place the day of the 2007 earthquake in the southern coast of Peru. Seven years later, an enigmatic woman brings Edo dozens of cryptic photos that may help solve the mystery of Celia's disappearance.

A labyrinth of clues submerges Edo in a race through the streets of Lima and the deserted beaches of Paracas. His final destination will confront him with the ultimate riddle any writer could face.Written by
I don't usually review movies as I'm better at watching them than writing about them. However, I saw this last night at TIFF and since there's nothing here I thought I'd start things off.
The film was shot in Peru, the director's original home, and tries as much as possible to capture that noir look. It's a nice film to watch, and the plot is interesting and leaves you trying to fit everything together in your head after the movie's complete.
I thought the acting wasn't anything to write home about, but was perfectly fine for this movie.
Overall: 8/10. I'd recommend it.
