This film, called "Ávido" is the first of its kind in the world and has 360 º-surround sounds, 8K resolution and is made in 3D, giving the viewer an entirely new way to experience cinema.
The flick is based on a Mexican legend, and it tells the story of a group of musicians who, seeking to fulfill their dreams, will embark on an adventure full of mystery and suspense, culminating at a private party which will quickly become an experience, both you and them, will never forget.
The interesting thing is that the fate and the mere survival of the characters rest upon the decisions taken by the viewer, therefore every single person in the audience will have their own experience and live, or die, depending on the path that they choose.
