Ariana, a young woman, will find herself in the midst of the harsh reality of the pandemic that began in 2020 due to the covid 19 virus, most countries in the world were strongly affected, each country took different measures, in Guatemala it was touch of is left over.
This type of confinement generated strong effects due to isolation, stress, depression, emptiness, loss and more.
For Ariana it was living in the living room of her house where she completely secluded herself and taking care of everything; always every day and right there, sleep, eat, study online, etc. Seeking to fill her emptiness, she draws a young woman inside a glass jar, reflecting herself in this time; work that she does not finish.
Her way of communicating and having a relationship with others was the cell phone where she found out the news and it was her means of contact with other people, this led her to moments of anger, rage and sadness, tired and exhausted from the same routine for months to what seemed to be no hope, suddenly he receives some messages, a couple of texts that he reads, they are biblical quotes from Ephesians 6 10-20 that speak of the spiritual battle, this reading makes him reflect on what he has lived and that the great ingrained fear could free him with the shield of faith and the helmet of salvation. This reflection has inspired him and he decides to go out spiritually wearing these shields symbolized in a shirt and cap respectively, he puts them on and goes on his way to look for one of his favorite places, that one, where he will meet again with a paradisiacal landscape in the nature of his country
The short film symbolizes in a contemporary way the coexisting spiritual battle in daily life, there are many ways in which it manifests itself causing harmful effects, this type of hostility that may not be perceived rationally; if it may be possible to identify it spiritually by the way it operates presenting itself in thoughts and in strange events of everyday life, which cause emotional and physical consequences.
The exit could be the story of many people in this time of confinement in which confinement caused the desire to flee and isolate themselves, as if locked inside a jar, not wanting contact with people for fear of contagion; adding at the same time panic attacks due to the uncertainty of the future, and more profoundly due to the lack of communion with others.
The story visualizes the effect that the word can cause when it is exposed and received with faith, its liberating result is the one that gives peace, hope, it is also capable of instilling courage, expectation, strength and joy, healing the soul and leading the body itself to externalize its reconstructive effects to captive lives.

Efesios 6:10-20 (RVR 1960)
La armadura de Dios
10 Por lo demás, hermanos míos, fortaleceos en el Señor, y en el poder de su fuerza.
11 Vestíos de toda la armadura de Dios, para que podáis estar firmes contra las asechanzas del diablo.
12 Porque no tenemos lucha contra sangre y carne, sino contra principados, contra potestades, contra los gobernadores de las tinieblas de este siglo, contra huestes espirituales de maldad en las regiones celestes.
Ephesians 6:10-20 (KJV 1960)
Armor of God
10 Finally, my brothers, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For we do not fight against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly realms.
13 Por tanto, tomad toda la armadura
de Dios, para que podáis resistir en el día malo, y habiendo acabado todo, estar firmes.
14 Estad, pues, firmes, ceñidos vuestros lomos con la verdad, y vestidos con la coraza de justicia,
15 y calzados los pies con el apresto del evangelio de la paz.
16 Sobre todo, tomad el escudo de la fe, con que podáis apagar todos los dardos de fuego del maligno
17 Y tomad el yelmo de la salvación, y la espada del Espíritu, que es la palabra de Dios;
13 Therefore take all the armor
of God, so that you can resist in the evil day, and having finished everything, be firm.
14 Stand firm therefore, having your loins girded with truth, and put on the breastplate of righteousness,
15 and feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace.
16 Above all, take the shield of faith, with which you can quench all the fiery darts of the evil one.
17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God;
