About the film
SILENCIO highlights a mysterious area in Mexico known as the Zone of Silence that has true events of the eerie. Located on the same parallel line of the Bermuda Triangle and the Pyramids of Giza, it has several weird and without explanation events such as rocket crashes, mutations in plants and animals, meteorite strikes, and more.
SILENCIO shares the story of Ana, played by Melina Matthews, who struggles to save her son’s life. She must find a powerful stone her grandfather, portrayed by John Noble, originally discovered with his apprentice (Rupert Graves) in the Zone of Silence in 1970. Throughout her desperate search, Ana stumbles upon long lost family secrets and discovers enemies who believe the stone’s power is worth killing for.
