Synopsis

Dani is an all-round good guy who has dedicated the last few years of his life to taking care of his sick father. After his dad passes away, he decides it’s time to get his own life back on track and buys a round-the-world ticket. But before his journey can get underway, he meets Mila, a young girl who is as attractive and sensual as she is disturbed and unstable. What starts out as a night of adventure quickly turns into a living nightmare, taking Dani to extremes he could never have imagined...

Critics reviews

"The director, with agile camerawork [...] and excellent use of sound and music, steps into the nightmare and brings us within a hair's breadth of Mario Casas' contorted face [...] another excellent performance". El País

"From the first shot in this truly excellent film [...] we are stuck, side by side with the protagonist […] and we remain so for the next agonizing and frenetic 90 or so minutes”. Fotogramas

“A nocturnal nightmare that makes Martin Scorsese’s After Hours seem like a fairy tale in comparison”. Cineuropa

“Milena Smith, an unknown actress, but so powerful that she gobbles up the shots and sequences in the same way a pack of teenagers wolf down their hamburgers”. ABC

“A titanic performance from Mario Casas” El Periódico
