A woman brings her family back to her childhood home, which used to be an orphanage for handicapped children. Before long, her son starts to communicate with an invisible new friend.
The orphanage was an old colonial house in the town of Llanes. As a lot of J.A. Bayona's cinematic plans were impossible to achieve on location, several parts of the house had to be recreated on a soundstage. In fact, over 80% of the film was shot in a studio.
1, 2, 3. Toca la pared.
Simon enters the basement from the same door as his mother, without using the door handle. He doesn't even rip the wallpaper. When his mother enters everything is untouched.
Pieces of wallpaper are peeled off to reveal each of the opening credits.
