  • The ART OF DYING Alternative


Thriller. Nacho, an artist who has a morbid fascination with death, suddenly disappears. Four years go by and his identity card is found. Inspector Quintana reopens the files and calls to see an acquaintance of Nacho's called Ivan. Ivan and his friends deny that Nacho was with them on a trip to a country house at the time of his death, but now they are forced to exhume his body and move it. At the time of the exhumation, a fire breaks out in the house, and flashbacks in the narrative begin to reveal what happened between the friends which ended in Nacho's `disappearance'. Back in the present day, Ivan begins to see Nacho's ghost and he himself becomes the object of his friends' suspicions.
