Through the Breaking Glass
A través del espejo

Three stars fall from the sky and transform into the pieces of a broken mirror. Alice, already a woman, awakens in a wonderful land. She doesn't remember either her name or how she got there, for that matter.

Each piece of broken glass hides a secret: a solitary and rainy alley, a little girl in a hospital, and a creature born from the darkness.

Alice will have to unveil the mystery of the broken glass before 6
o'clock, when terrible things are bound to occur…

Genre: Fantasy/Drama
