It´s New Year´s Eve and in one of Madrid´s main train stations, several passengers are taking their seats on the last high speed train of the year. The few passengers who are on board are eager to get to their destinations to celebrate with their loved ones, but as the weather begins to take a turn for the worse, their anticipation begins to fade. Halfway through the journey, the train comes to an abrupt halt, leaving those on board with no means of communicating with the outside world. As darkness sets in, impatience quickly gives way to a general feeling of unease as it is discovered that a fellow passenger has died in his seat. It doesn´t seem like a good omen… and it isn´t!
“The story is basically narrated in real time, and parallel to this, we have interviews with the passengers from an investigative report. This allows us to see how the passengers’ opinions can change with hindsight but also how, when it comes to talking about our fears, everyone lies. The aim of Stranded is not to impose a moral standpoint on terrorism, racism or the clash of certain cultures. What it does hope to do is offer the viewer 90 intense minutes of human reactions to a fear that is becoming more and more universal, a dark climax and above all, the chance to form part of the protagonists’ fears.”
