EL DÍA QUE RESISTÍA

Alone in an isolated house at in the countryside, Fan, Tino and Claa (9, 7 and 5 years old) wait for their parents to come back. Among games and tales, the waiting persists and solitude grows unsettling. In the midst of a strange and confusing atmosphere, the apparently innocent and playful world of the children begins to unveil its darker side. El día que resistía (The endless day) takes a singular look onto the childhood experience through an unconventional narrative.
