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.
The story of two men on different sides of a prison riot -- the inmate leading the rebellion and the young guard trapped in the revolt, who poses as a prisoner in a desperate attempt to survive the ordeal.
Five close friends, all of them married, share a loft to meet their mistresses. One day they find the body of a young woman in the loft. Since there are only five keys to the loft, the five men begin to suspect each other of murder.

On November 9, 1989 (the same day the Wall of Berlin falls), Nico is a 12-year-old boy passionate about videotaping himself while playing guitar. He is being raised by his single mother María.

He ventures into the house and stumbles on Hilda Weiss, Prieto's wife, lying dead in the house. Running scared from Prieto, who has discovered him in his home, Nico is run over by a passing car and dies as a result.

Being excessively binary, either you are ultra-rational and you will probably feel that this story is far-fetched, either you have a strong appetite for the 'Twilight Zone' atmospheres, and you should love this movie. If I have to be categorized, I clearly belong to the second category: I liked this story which establishes a literally extra-ordinary connection between Nico (a 12-year-old kid living in 1989) and Vera (a 30-year-old mother living in 2014), thanks to a vhs recorder and an unconventional storm. Thus, the mother prevents the death, 25 years earlier, of this teenager which implies the passage from one space-time to another: a complete new life for her, without her daughter but with the full memory of the ancient life, especially her daughter, now nonexistent. What a nightmare! But, she definitely wants her ancient life back.
These are the first 15 minutes.
The continuation is to be discovered and enjoyed !
