In bustling downtown Madrid, a loud gunshot and two mysterious deaths trap a motley assortment of common urbanites in a decrepit central bar, while paranoia and suspicion force the terrified regulars to turn on each other.
Víctor is a child who is found casually roaming by a country road. His mother, Patricia, a well-known lawyer who specializes in media trials, soon learns of her son being found. Victor is taken to hospital and his mother soon follows, where it is explained by the mother that Víctor is deaf and mute, but can communicate using sign language which is why Victor didn't answer any of the questions asked by police. In the police headquarter Víctor explains that he was kidnapped by a strange man when he entered his school. The police identify a possible suspect named Charlie, a man with money troubles and an 8-month pregnant wife. Charlie is unable to explain where he was when Víctor was kidnapped. Patricia, seeing the inability of the police to arrest Charlie, contacts her former love interest and Victor's father, Raúl, starting a chain of events, the consequences of which will be out of control.Written by

I have become a fan of Spanish movies, they seem to have what it takes. And so does this movie. It's a decent thriller, has a nice story with a few twists that keep you interested. Not very violent or scary type of thriller, but more of the action type. And I felt that it wasn't predictable. The basic idea is that of a mother and the things she would do, or get through, to save her kid. It's not exactly award-winning, but I enjoyed it very much. And so did my husband, and he is usually picky. The only scene I did not like is one that suggests animal violence, but don't worry, no animals do actually get hurt, and you can see that in the movie. So it is a nice movie that would please you and it definitely isn't a waste of time.
