Audition Description

In this psychological horror based on a true story; Ricard Saigain is a struggling immigrant living in rural United States with his adolescent son, Palu. After suffering an illness and not having the money for a doctor, Ricard bums a prescription off of his boss; an antibiotic called Ciprofloxacin. The pill works, but with one horrible side effect: he loses the ability to fall asleep. Without sleep he experiences horrible hallucinations as his mind and body deteriorates over time All while his son, Palu, can only watch in terror…

  • Ricard is a wiry, glasses-wearing immigrant trying to make it big in the United States. He works as an artist at a tattoo parlor, which is how he is barely able to scrape by. He loves his son and works hard to provide for him, but is ultimately frustrated by him. He soon becomes very sick throughout the film; vomiting, night terrors, and even having bizarre and vivid hallucinations. Although he tries not to show it in front of Palu, he is at his core a very nervous and terrified man, caught in the clutch of something beyond his control.

While his dad's situation gets worse, Palu can hardly do anything to stop the affliction that is taking over his father's mind and body, and can only react in fear.
