While travelling by ferry to the island of El Hierro, Maria mysteriously loses her young son Diego. Diego simply vanishes. Has he fallen overboard? Has he been abducted? Nobody seems to know.
Six months later...Maria is fighting to overcome the pain of her loss, to pick up the pieces and continue with her life, when she receives an unexpected call. A child's body has been discovered; she must return to El Hierro. On the island, in this strange and threatening landscape, surrounded by sinister, malevolent characters, Maria is forced to confront her worst nightmares. As she travels the terrible path that may lead to her son, Maria will make the most unbearable discovery of all - that some mysteries should never be revealed.
Emotionally devastating, visually stunning and truly terrifying, a Spanish genre thriller in the tradition of JA Bayona's THE ORPHANAGE and Guillermo del Toro's PAN'S LABYRINTH, HIERRO depicts one woman's desperate journey into a nightmare vortex of horror and loss.
