HORROR - BASED ON TRUE EVENTS
BIRTH AND DEATH ARE EXTRAORDINARY EXPERIENCES. LIFE IS A FLEETING PLEASURE.
In the mid 90's, about twenty urban dancers joined together for a 3-day rehearsal in a closed down boarding school located at the heart of a forest, to share one last dance. They then make one last party around a large sangria bowl.
Quickly, the atmosphere becomes charged and a strange madness will seize them the whole night. If it seems obvious to them that they have been drugged, they neither know by who nor why. And it's soon impossible for them to resist to their neurosises and psychoses, numbed by the hypnotic and the increasing electric rythm of the music... While some feel in paradise, most of them plunge into hell.
