The Wrong Path (El mal camino)

What appears (and disappears) along the way can change your life forever.  

Chucks Basil is an old, washed-up and problematic rock star. He moves to a small town in France hoping to work on his new music – the first album after 10 years of hiatus.  Coincidently, his best friend and famous author Bert Amandale, also moves to a town nearby.

One night, Bert and Chucks go out to dinner. An easily bothered Chucks gets involved in a fight and before matters get worse, they leave and Bert accompanies Chucks to his car. On his way home, Chucks puts his music on full blast and lights a cigarette. He loses sight of the road for one instant, as he lowers his gaze to light the cigarette, and when he looks up and sees a man in the middle of the road, it is too late to stop. The man dies in Chucks´ arms, but not before muttering strange phrases. Chucks flees the scene, leaving the corpse to bleed out in the middle of the road, terrified by the consequences this could bring. Chucks can´t help but feel guilty for what he has done, it eats him alive, so he decides to return to the sight of the accident. Upon arriving, he notices there is no longer a trace of the corpse. Additionally, no words of the accident seems to have gotten through to the news or anyone in town and a series of strange events begin to unfold thereafter.
