“On the Fringe explores the impact of an acute external crisis on personal relationships: the way an economic crunch can affect couples, parents, and children,” Botto said of the film, according to the publication. “And within that, the role that women play in holding families together during hard times; how losing one’s job, one’s income, triggers different reactions in different people.”

Cruz stars alongside Luis Tosar, Christian Checa, Adelfa Calvo, Juan Diego Botto, Aixa Villagrán, Font García, Maria Isabel Díaz Lago, Sergio Villanueva and Nur Levi. The Spanish actress also produces with Álvaro Longoria.

Executive producers are Yana Georgina and Stephen Kelligher. André Logie is a co-producer. Additional credits include cinematography by Arnau Valls, music by Eduardo Cruz, costume design by Wanda Morales, makeup and hair by Pablo Iglesias and Manuela Merino, art direction by Clara Notari, and editing by Mapa Pastor.
