Hugo Cuellar comments: "I've always liked Film Noir and I wanted to create something similar and different at the same time. The idea to have insects in a thriller came to me as a desire to make the characters as uniquely grotesque, weird and funny as the story allowed. The result is possibly one of the weirdest short stories I've written." [from BBC Film Network website - information no longer accessible online]
