Nearly a decade after making his feature directorial debut with the stylish psychological thriller Nobody Knows Anybody, Open Your Eyes's screenwriter Mateo Gil returns to frighten film lovers with this installment of the Six Films to Keep You Awake horror series concerning an ageing writer confronted by a lingering childhood obsession. Upon returning to the quaint coastal village where he was born and discovering that it has long since been turned into a tacky tourist resort, elderly writer Alejandro suddenly finds his thoughts drifting back to a painful experience from his past. As a young boy Alejandro met a mysterious woman he could never forget, no matter how hard he tried. Her beauty was hypnotic, and she was married to a local sailor. When rumors began to spread that she was seeing another man behind her husband's back, however, the community aligned themselves against her. Yet despite the fact that she was a virtual outcast in the village, Alejandro still remains under her captivating spell to this very day. One day, while walking through town, Alejandro catches a glimpse of a woman who is the spitting image of that beautiful pariah. But could it really be her? After all these years, she doesn't appear to have aged a day. A cauldron of pent up emotions boiling up within him, the elderly writer somehow summons the courage to follow the woman to her destination. But it isn't mere chance that brought Alejandro back into contact with woman he has tried for decades to forget; she's been patiently awaiting his return all along, and only by giving in to his overwhelming desire for her will he finally find out why.
