Adapted from Paul Pen’s eponymous novel by crack screenwriters Chris Sparling (Buried) and Jorge Guerricaechevarría (Cell 211), this intricate, inventive thriller pivots between points in time to chronicle a terrible curse that threatens the life of an innocent.

2008: A man is shot in a convenience store in a seemingly random act of violence. But was it random? As the victim lays in coma, his math-whiz best friend begins to decipher a history of eerily similar events occurring in the same location. 2018: a bullied boy receives an anonymous warning that should he enter that convenience store on his tenth birthday he will surely die.

With its echoes of 12 Monkeys , To Steal From a Thief director Daniel Calparsoro’s return to Miami is a bravura display of suspense, high emotion and bold revelation.

This film is also featured in the 2018 Film Festival’s HBO Ibero American Competition Film Category.
