Ulysses is a hundred-year-old man, he lives alone and is on the verge of death. The last night of his life, he will experience something that will force him to rethink his past, his present and his view about his reality.

From Gonzalo Calzada, an astonishing tour de force reflection on the twilight years as a unique opportunity for redemptive connection with the truth of one’s being. Ulysses is 100 years old and lives alone on the verge of death. On this, the last night of his life, he experiences something forcing him to rethink his past, his present and his reality. Tortured by guilty remorse and confused by his senile dementia, he must make a last ditch effort to embrace his demise in freedom or become a soul in sorrow for eternity.

"Few horror thrillers have struck an emotional chord like Nocturna has"
- Andrew Mack, Fantaspoa 2021 Review (Screen Anarchy)

"Nocturna" is headlined by Argentine actor and playwright Pepe Soriano, a 50-year industry veteran, three-time Argentine Critics Association Award-winner, Spanish Academy Goya Award nominee for his role as Franco's double in "Wait for Me in Heaven," and Valladolid best actor winner for his work in "El ultimo tren." Marilu Marini, a star of French genre films from the '70s and '80s, plays opposite Soriano in a continuation of her career renaissance which includes 2017's "Los Que Aman Odian," Argentina's 2020 Oscar submission "The Sleepwalkers" and Netflix's French series "Vampires."
