One day, an anomaly in MEMORIES CORP’s system causes MARIA ANA to loose all of her past, including the parts with her late husband.

Director Statement

Anomaly explores obsession and the absence of hope through the perspective of Maria Ana, an older woman clinging to her memories, unable to live a present which she feels, is ungrateful to her. The evolution of the story connects her with Celia and Nikola, two opposite but complementary characters.

Each one represents positions with respect to destiny: those who accept it with an anguishing conformism, those who are obsessed with changing it and those with determination so strong as to write their own.
