No one knows how it really started… Some say it was because of the crisis, the disgust, the unemployment, the hunger… Others think it was because a conspiracy, because those few little black hands that pull the strings were bored and wanted to play.
And me? I just think it was the time to break the rules, to stop this fuckin’ big wheel fed with our pain and our condescendence.
—Lay, a survivor
Year 2030. Lay (Javier Server) stands in the middle of a deserted and ravaged Plaza de Colón (Madrid) holding an assault rifle.
While Lay tries to escape carrying a mysterious device, he tells us how the governments turned their backs on the citizens and how the city became a battlefield. But to run away, he will have to face some drones that haunt him.
Will he achieve the mission and return with the other survivors to give back the control to the citizens?
Destroy Madrid is a collaborative project made with no grants and no external funding. It’s an action/sci-fi/political short film that at the same time, works as a proof-of-concept that is expected to be explored in a feature film, which screenplay I am writting.
