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.

From the award-winning author of The Second Time Around, The Beaumont Series, comes a full-length novella about love, family and making every second count.... Brenna and Jabarie Beaumont have been happily married for nine years. She loves her husband and their five children, but between managing a bookstore and her family, Brenna is starting to feel overwhelmed. Determined not to be anything like her estranged mother, she feels forced to make a choice between the business she loves and quality time with their children. Jabarie had no idea Brenna was feeling overburdened. As CEO of the Beaumont Corporations, he’s been busy dealing with problems of his own. The hotel has been hit with economic hardship and has little choice but to lay off ten percent of its staff. But in Sheraton Beach everyone is family, and the Beaumonts are determined to find another way. With everything going on, Jabarie thinks what he and Brenna need is a weekend away from the stresses of work and family, wrapped in each other's arms, while making some serious decisions about the future. Unfortunately pulling Brenna away from the kids for an insatiable weekend is easier said than done.
But Jabarie is willing to use any means necessary to convince her. Unfortunately, getting away complicates matters in more ways than one. Is Brenna and Jabarie’s love strong enough to overcome all the obstacles thrown their way?
