Reeling from loss and living in self-imposed exile, wheelchair-bound Joaquín (Leonardo Sbaraglia, Wild Tales) whiles his days away stewing in bitterness and fiddling with surveillance equipment in his grungy basement. But when a room-for-rent ad is answered by Berta (Clara Lago), Joaquin finds his antisocial way of life upended by the brash, sexy single mom and her mysterious young daughter. As his icy disposition slowly begins to thaw, Joaquín uncovers a plot by a gang of criminals, led by psychopath Galetero (Pablo Echarri), to tunnel their way beneath his home and into the vault of a nearby bank. Rather than call the cops, Joaquín senses an opportunity to get his life back on track in this wild, unpredictable rollercoaster ride of a thriller.
Combining ingenious visuals, tight editing and a rich, evocative sound design, writer/director Rodrigo Grande follows up his 2009 hit A Matter of Principles with an emotionally rich cat-and-mouse thriller that would've made Hitchcock's palms sweat.
