Fresh from its triumphant Sundance debut, R.J. Mitte (Breaking Bad) and Luis Gerardo Méndez (Club of Crows) star in this ingeniously creepy comedy from Mexican writer-director Sebastián Hofmann (MFF’13’s Halley) about two men who begin to suspect that their idyllic getaway is part of a nefarious conspiracy.
Pedro and Andrés settle into their tropical resort hotel, seeking nothing more than some chill time with their respective families. But it quickly becomes evident that something is seriously amiss at this branch of the Everfields International Family, an American hospitality conglomerate. The men see something that no one else does: Everfields is secretly scheming to take their families away—and they’re not going to take this lying down.
Crafting major entertainment from a chilling premise, Hofmann follows his unlikely heroes as they embark on a valiant crusade to rescue their loved ones from a paradise built in hell.
This film is also featured in the 2018 Film Festival’s HBO Ibero American Competition film category.
