The film is directed by Luis Javier Henaine. It stars Harold Torres, Teté Espinoza, Fermin Martinez, Vicky Araico, Norma Reyna, Quetzalli Cortés.

Here is the full synopsis:

Santiago Mendoza is the best tabloid crime photographer in Mexico City, but his profession has made him insensitive and incapable of showing affection to his wife Marcela. One night, Santiago intercepts an emergency call and despite the police’s warnings, he infiltrates a disturbing crime scene. Soon after, he begins to suffer a mysterious illness that makes him lose, one-by-one, his five senses. Without knowing what’s wrong with him or why, Santiago must find a solution to this affliction, before the world knows he disappears completely.
