And suddenly, overnight, the world came to a halt. Two men, two survivors, one kid, and hatred that separates them. A place forgotten by everyone, including the creatures that inhabit the Earth... until now.
Nine years after an infection turns most of the humanity into rabid creatures, Patrick, Jack and Lu, a nine-year-old girl, survive in seeming peace and calm in the forgotten snow-covered town of Harmony. We nonetheless sense that something terrible happened between Patrick and Jack because a deep hate keeps them apart. When the infected appear again, Patrick and Jack will have to leave behind all rancor to protect the one being who means more to them than anything else.
Adapted from the bestselling novel "Y pese a todo" from author Juan de Dios Garduno. See more »
You can't give a dog chocolate. Especially that much chocolate over it appears a long period of time. Chocolate is highly toxic to dogs. The dog would be dead long before it was even bit and killed.. See more »
How you doing, John Doe?
[as John Doe]
I'm doing good, Patrick, really good.
And so tell me, John, are you happy?
[as John Doe]
Of course, Patrick, why wouldn't I be?
Well, maybe because you haven't talked to anybody for nine years.
Besides your stupid dog.

Apocalypses come and go ... especially in movie terms. And there are different sort of movies. Those who take upon them to show us how and if an apocalypse is coming. And those who are showing us and concentrate more on the aftermath. This is a case of the latter. But it's also a slow burner.
Do not expect this to be highlight upon highlight, and excitement upon excitement. No this is human drama at its finest. You could argue and wonder if the animosities are real - or rather if there is enough reason for conflict, but humans are hard to figure out. And living isolated does make people do crazy things from time to time ... I wouldn't react like that, I think, but the internal logic of the movie still works. And there is enough tension to keep you on the edge of your seat, once the movie gets going.
