Belgium, March 2020. Suddenly unemployed in a country in lockdown, young Directors of Photography Pablo Curtzen Diaz and Robin Smit decide to look for the stories behind the numbers and the people behind the masks.

Pablo Crutzen, Robin Smit and Stijn Deconinck, three young Belgian talents, are at the heart of the project. At the peak of the COVID pandemic, Pablo and Robin spent night and day in the Erasmus University Hospital while Stijn is writing a script to shape the story of what the film could be.
