In his return to cinema, Lluís Galter’s work is on theborderline, always on the razor's edge, takingus to a quintessential summer of camping and beach to bring three teenage friends into contact with the legend of a boy who mysteriously disappeared in the 1980s. When they observe strange behaviour and another child goes missing, they decide to investigate the mystery in thisindomitable film, with aconstant feeling of unrestthat goes much further-beginningin the peculiar texture of the image and endingin its resistance to being labelled.
