Antonio is a middle-aged family man with traditional views and a high-ranking job title. He has lived firmly by the rules instilled within him by his parents and grandparents and has no intention of reevaluating his priorities until he is shaken to his core by an extreme situation. Antonio is forced to set aside his beliefs and his limited understanding of life, as he strives to follow his most primal of instincts.

Armando Bo’s thought-provoking and darkly comic thriller has been praised for the excellent performance of Guillermo Francella as Antonio, and the boldness of its screenplay.
