In “El Refugio” a family experiences the strangest hours of their lives when unusual phenomena begin to take place, apparently caused by a completely unidentified force of nature. But all of it happens through their screens. When they go outside, nothing seems to be happening, aside from what springtime in the Mexican countryside holds in store for a group of humans. The parents must protect their children from an invisible enemy whom not even they know exists for real. What is real? What happened to the world they knew? Is this ranch a refuge? Is it the final stronghold of humanity?
“El Refugio” cast also includes Zuria Vega (“La Venganza de las Juanas”), Alfredo Castro (El Club), Diego Escalona (“La Suerte de Loli”), Camila Valero (“Herederos Por Accidente”), Isabella Arroyo (A Love Letter), Jorge Antonio Guerrero (Roma), Gabriela Cartol (La Camarista), Fernanda Urrejola (“Narcos”), Paloma Woolrich (“La Muchacha Que Limpia”), Cayetano Arámburo (“¿Quién mató a Sara?”), Consuelo Carreño (Algunas Bestias), and a special apperance by Gustavo Sánchez Parra (“La Muchacha que Limpia”).
