A day at the beach with a baby; a car accident; a fight: these are some of the fragments Sol is able to remember bit by bit after she wakes up at a hospital. The doctor and the two nurses attending her refuse to answer her questions while keeping her sedated. A character by the name of Ino appears in her dreams guiding her through her lost memories. But Ino is not a figment of her imagination. “Sun in the Water” is a challenging and mind-blowing psychological thriller about consciousness, guilt, fate and the choices that we make.

Un día en la playa con un bebé; un accidente de coche; una pelea: estos son algunos de los eventos que Sol es capaz de recordar poco a poco después de despertarse en un hospital. El médico y las dos enfermeras que la atienden se niegan a responder sus preguntas mientras la mantienen sedada. Un personaje con el nombre de Ino aparece en sus sueños, guiándola a través de sus recuerdos perdidos. Pero Ino no es producto de su imaginación. “Sol en el agua” es un desafiante y alucinante thriller psicológico sobre la conciencia, la culpa y el destino.
