Life changes on a dime when a toxic and mysterious pink cloud appears across the globe, forcing the world indoors immediately and indefinitely. In Brazil, Giovana (Renata de Lélis) finds herself stuck in her apartment with a man she just met (Eduardo Mendonça). But their carefree one-night stand grows into a years-long relationship complicated by a child and increasingly divergent worldviews as they try to imagine a future from the depths of a potentially never-ending lockdown. 

Written in 2017 and shot in 2019, this stunning, slow-burn sci-fi debut from writer/director luli Gerbase is both an eerily prescient reflection of our reality and a cathartic exploration of hope and despair, love and fear, and the boundlessness and limits of our ability as humans to adapt.

"Staggeringly original... will make you wonder if writer/director Iuli Gerbase is a prophet." 

—Jourdain Searles, 

Hyperallergic “Haunting and riveting in the best way.” 

— Alissa Wilkinson, Vox 

 "Uncanny [and] ambitious." 

—Carlos Aguilar, Roger 


—David Sims, The Atlantic 

 “Nails lockdown life with aching, precise accuracy... Might endure as more era-evocative than many of the intentional pandemic dramas to come.” 

—Guy Lodge, Variety 

 “Oddly therapeutic… with thoughtful camerawork and surreal production design elements propelling its observations into spine-tingling familiarity.” 

—Tomris Laffly, Harper's Bazaar
