This intense and exciting thriller tells of the escape of a mother and her daughter in an Audi Q4 Sportback e-tron and the encounter with a stranger who will bring out her most hidden secrets.

        Echegui defines her character as follows: “Cristina is a woman who runs away but who, despite what she has suffered, discovers that there are good people willing to help”, and adds: “I loved working with Kike, he is easy, flexible , playful and as an actress I appreciate it very much.

Like the casting, which has exceeded my expectations, “he explains.

Seeing someone with enthusiasm and talent, like Pedro Marchán, carry out a short film with such precision moves me. We left the shoot very happy. I think that the emotional texture of Pedro’s script has been endorsed by the good work and chemistry of the two protagonists: Verónica Echegui and Javier Oliveras. And I have a feeling that all of those elements together are going to take this short thriller genre to a more emotional place than we’re used to.”
