House of Echo

After getting a piece of land as an unexpected gift on his birthday day, Alejo, a melancholic architect, started a journey to the heart of the mountain with his wife and a disturbing local who guided them through the woods. Alejo suffers from a particular sleep disorder that blurs the line between reality and fantasy and leads him to confront his wife. He has made it possible to shorten distance for the echo to be produced, he has a daughter that seems to be straight out of a fairy tale and a wife he loves. But when a wall in the building site where he works collapses, the void inevitably occurs, endangering everything he thought to have built.
