The budget was limited to 900 thousand dollars(very inexpensive for north American standards), produced by Alina Hleap it takes place in Cali, Colombia and it shows us the seemingly normal life of Jose Gonzalez who discovers one day the signs of a deadly disease in his body.

At this point he decides to kill himself since this skin virus has no way to be avoided or controlled, killing himself or trying to is Jose's least problem since soon enough a bombing in the nearby vicinity thwarts his intent of committing suicide and makes him think his disease and the bombing is linked to the sudden appearance of replicas of his own persona.
