In the near future. Humanity is on the edge of extinction and survival has become a perverse game. A couple travels somewhere unknown to make a trade-off.

Deliver is a story that triggers things in different layers for me. First, it’s a dystopian story about the future, a very horrible but also possible future, especially if as a society we keep behaving the way we do. Second, it’s a story that was filmed forty minutes from La Havana, Cuba, in a place called “El pueblo textil”, literary the textile town, a forgotten, and almost ghost town where hundreds of people are trying to find a decent way to live. It is a story about the sacrifices of a young couple, that reminds us that even in the worsts circumstances, and maybe very well hidden, there’s always a chance for hope.
