    • Synopsis
    • Seven stories that mix horror and comedy. Seven moments of black humor as strange as near. Seven surrealistic visions of a society that does not progress, a dysfunctional society:

      Family: A parents awake their lazy son in the middle of the night. They should talk to him about an urgent and horrible matter that will change his life forever: they have decided to abort him 20 years late.

      Property: A real estate agent teaches a flat in the city center to a potential buyer. The flat, without doubt, has possibilities but a small detail surprises the client: the previous tenant hangs from the dining room lamp.

      Commitment: A couple just ready to marry. In wealth and poverty, in health and in sickness, until death. What if we save the process and we go directly to death?

      Solidarity: A middle-aged couple dines peacefully at home. On TV, they relate the hardships of the children of a third world country. The TV brings the third world home. Literally. And one thing is solidarity and the other, well, the other can not be, right?

      Work: A marriage in the dressing room of a rich home . There are noises coming from the floor. The reason? 700 slaves work in the next season collection.

      Order: No one on the neighbors staircase remembers that there is beyond the number '6', and unknown things are unknown for good reason, so we better move on to the next chapter, the number ... Oops.

      Progress: A man has been run over and calls for help in the middle of the night. As his death approaches, a woman explains him why it is not worth calling an ambulance if, at last, he is already almost dead.
