Ha sucedido. El fin del mundo ha llegado y Santiago nuevamente se encuentra sitiada, pero esta vez no solo por militares y paramilitarea...
Alberto, Max y Valentina, tres jóvenes latinoamericanos social y políticamente discordantes, tendrán que aprender a entenderse para subsistir en una tormenta de violencia apocalíptica, mientras inician un sangriento viaje hacia el sur de Chile intentando escapar del horror capitalino. En su recorrido se verán enfrentados a sórdidas pruebas de supervivencia, teniendo que aprender a confiar entre sí y en su determinación de salvarse. Al mismo tiempo, descubrirán que aquello que los separa –y que aún divide a la sociedad chilena– acecha desde las sombras y provoca un ruido que es exacerbado por la situación límite que les toca enfrentar. Con una narrativa ágil y cinematográfica, Todo es rojo confronta ideologías y valores en un contexto de crisis, poniendo en tensión la posibilidad de un pensamiento después de la catástrofe.
