The banal existence of a city-dwelling man in his twenties is forever shattered upon meeting a mysterious woman in this expressionistic, futuristic thriller from underground Cuban filmmaker Miguel Coyula. In a city ravaged by acid rain and overrun by mysterious crimson cockroaches, life is spent under the constant watch of the omnipresent DNA21 Corporation. Following the haunting appearance of his long-dead sister on a subway platform, a bored young man and his strange companion embark on a surreal journey into the secrets of their family past where nothing is taboo and the oppressive forces of the outside world watch his every move.
