Description: Antonio Decoud is a conservative family man who is forced by destiny to face an unexpected situation that shakes him to the core, scrambling up his life and his priorities, pushing him to forget his beliefs and his way of understanding life and follow the most basic instinct: the animal instinct.
Some years ago a friend of my father bought a kidney in Bolivia. His wife was very sick and she was last in the transplant list. He is a very wealthy man and he ended up buying the kidney in the Bolivian black market. I couldn’t believe that this regular man that I knew could do something like this. Some time later I run into a newspaper article, a young man had posted an ad offering a kidney in exchange for a house. Both things were instantly connected in my mind, ANIMAL was born in that second. I had to write it.
