The Pill is a sci-fi and dramatic dystopia that reflects on our moral concepts, freedom about oneself and life, and the relativity of right and wrong.

In the near future, the company ALAS provides the public with a controversial product. Belén, an employee of ALAS, is outraged by her company’s new policy of lowering the minimum age requirement, finding herself torn between following her heart and keeping her job. Alma, a 19-year-old young woman with a seemingly perfect life, has decided to enlist the company services.

In the reception lobby, Alma is given her room’s keycard, but when she recognizes the number on the key as her date of birth, a seed of doubt is planted. Mounting pressure from the controlling receptionist and a feeling of not being able to turn back now force her to continue to the room where Belén joins her.

Upstairs in room 422, right and wrong is suddenly not so clear, and ethics and morality will not help you to make the right choice.
