What if our deceased relatives could
contact us over the phone from the other side?

Marc, a recently divorced art restoration expert cannot believe his son when the kid tells him he is having phone conversations with his grandfather, which would be nothing out of the ordinary, except for the fact that his grandfather has been dead for years.

In 1140 AD, a young friar on a secret mission for one of his superiors is chased by an evil entity and will risk his life to protect a mysterious box. He will hide it within the walls of the Benedictine Monastery of Sant Pere de Rodes, where it will remain hidden for centuries.

In the present time, a mysterious stranger hires Marc to decode the symbols carved on a millenary clay tablet, which will soon put him on the trail of one of mankind’s best-kept secrets, the potential existence of a portal to communicate directly with the Other Side.

When the life of his little son is threatened by the evil forces, Marc and his partner Sandra will set off on a dangerous quest that will take them around the country, exploring medieval ruins, unraveling dark family secrets, and fighting for their lives against otherworldly enemies which try to conquer the immense power that lays beyond the portal, a secret hidden for centuries.

Their quest may bring them closer to finding the truth about the portal’s existence, but it can also mean the end of his life and that of his loved ones.

Marc will have to determine whether it is a direct line with Heaven, Hell, or with someplace very different.


A thrilling adventure that will take you to Sant Pere de Rodes Monastery, Gaudi's Sagrada Familia cathedral, Barcelona city, and

Monastery with red sky


It is located on a hill in the province of Girona (Catalonia), overlooking the Port de la Selva Bay, on the spectacular Costa Brava.

It is believed to have been founded in the 9th century, soon becoming a Benedictine monastery, a fine example of native Catalan Romanesque.

The site displays an imposing defensive tower, a magnificent yet austere church with a bell tower, and two superimposed cloisters, surrounded by a dining room, monks’ cells and other quarters.

Legend says the monastery was built on top of a chapel that had been erected by monks fleeing by boat from the city of Rome under siege, carrying holy relics (the head and one hand of Saint Peter) which they buried in those hills.

"Family will always be at the heart of everything. When all seems lost, when darkness is all around us and there´s no hope in sight, wouldn´t it be nice to hear a comforting voice telling us everything will be alright and showing us the way?"
