Several hours have passed since the terrible events that ravaged the old building in Barcelona. After the chaos of the first few moments, the army decided to intervene and an élite group of soldiers infiltrated the building in order to plant detonators and put an end to this nightmare once and for all. The mission is a success; quick and precise. Ángela Vidal, the young television reporter who entered the building with the fireman just hours before, manages to make it out alive. But what they don’t know is that she hasn’t made it out of the building alone; within her she carries the seed of the strange infection.
“Five years have passed since while innocently accompanying a group of firemen, the reporter Ángela Vidal entered that cursed building in Barcelona and revealed to the world the horrors of an unknown and lethal virus. And through her, we experienced it all first-hand; we felt the same fear and anguish as if everything was happening to us in real life. We followed her in the discovery of confusing and sinister clues on the origin of that abomination: a lethal and contagious illness of uncontrollable fury, the suspicious involvement of the Catholic Church, a dark past hidden in the unfathomable darkness of a forgotten attic… For over five years we have been scrambling around for more clues to help us solve this terrifying enigma. But now, finally, the moment of truth has arrived: it’s time to discover the true nature of this evil force, the secret of its origin and the monstrous magnitude of its consequences. […] A farewell party with all the ingredients that we love the most… and… some very special guests… This is one occasion you don’t want to miss!” – Jaume Balagueró
