The director Fede Álvarez got the idea to the upcoming nail bitter, Don’t Breathe, as he was growing up in Montevideo, Uruguay.
In Don’t Breathe, we meet three friends with a shortage of cash and faulty moral compasses. When they get news about a blind man who might have $300,000 stashed in his home, they see a solution to their problems. They come up with a plan to break into the man’s home, grab the cash and get out of there. It’s just one small problem; the blind man isn’t keen on having visitors snooping around his home.
