As José Luis Marzo would say: "every mist breathes a chilling beauty". Las Fauces is a sensory exploration of violence in an enigmatic territory charged with tension and mysticism. The mist blurs the boundaries between reality and fantasy, enveloping the protagonist in a luminous way in a suspended universe torn between chaos and apparent harmony. Deivis, a lonely adolescent, finds an injured body, a young man who belongs to the world of the dead, the closeness between them is refulgent, it is the longing for a new family as a dream of times past. Loneliness becomes a riddle in the encounter with another, in the encounter with oneself.
