On an ordinary day in bustling downtown Madrid, life ticks over as usual, while inside a decrepit and noisy central bar, a motley assortment of common urbanites is killing time indolently, up until a loud gunshot sends chills down the spine. Out of the blue, now a man lies dead in front of the bar in a pool of blood, and then surprisingly, in broad daylight, another death follows. Where did that mysterious lethal bullet come from? Is this an act of terrorism or is there a solitary invisible sniper hidden on a roof? As hysteria prevails and the bodies miraculously vanish into thin air, the perplexed and terrified bar's regulars are bound to turn on each other, paranoid and suspicious of the potential assassin who might be hiding inside the place. Is there indeed a wolf among sheep? Written by
A breadth of characters find themselves in a strange situation inside a bar in Madrid. They are there because different reasons and coincidences, some of them know each other but others are just passersby.
When they are confronted with the thrill, anxiety and fear of the inexplicable events that happen in the surroundings and they are closed in the suffocating bar atmosphere, each is going to react differently. And how one of them wisely points out, you show your real personality in limit situations.
It's a nice way of spending a couple of hours, it has the right amount of thriller and funny situations, the actors perform an excellent work and you'll not look at your watch or mobile phone during the entire movie.
