‘Bird Box Barcelona’ : Plot
Bird Box Barcelona takes place in Barcelona, Spain, and is set in a different timeframe than the original. In the film, Sebastian and his small daughter Anna struggle to get through their city’s desolate streets. Sebastian and Anna forge an uneasy alliance with a group of other survivors while evading the creatures who are causing a sharp fall in the world’s population.
Curiously, the father and daughter must deal with a threat that is “even more sinister” than the ones that might cause a person to take their own life, according to the official announcement on the Netflix site Tudum. It would be intriguing to discover if this threat has anything to do with the survivors’ “uneasy” partnership and, if so, how Sebastian and Anna will be able to flee.
