Synopsis

Mónica adores her daughter Clara. One day, the teenager is found unconscious, immersed in an inexplicable coma, which the experts don’t find a solution. Anxious by pain and drive by desperation, Monica would be able to do anything to save her and bring her to life. Even acts that could cause unexpected consequences.

David Victori dives onto supernatural horror thriller field to present his debut, and he does it managing at ease all the resources of the genre. He introduces a turbid story which shows the dark we all have inside, hastens the choices of characters on emotional verge. Elegant, with a suggestive atmosphere, combining subtle hints and suspense traces, the film comes enhanced by the performances of the charismatics Belén Rueda and Darío Grandinetti. Beyond the qualities of a film that will catch audience on its spider net since first sequence, "The Pact" works also as helpful teaser of this young director’s career.
