    • Synopsis
    • A run down construction-machine factory in Mexico City: Maquinaria Panamericana. The employees are happily winding down for the weekend, just like every Friday, except that this day a shocking event breaks their routine: their beloved boss, Don Alejandro, is found dead in the back of a warehouse.
      Soon this discovery leads to further ones: the company is bankrupt, the workforce have no prospects of employment elsewhere and no hope for any retirement funds. In a state of confusion, fear and grief they decide to hide his death and lock themselves in their dusty workplace to play out an improbable solution.
