    • Synopsis
    • What is the limit between civility and barbarism? How much do we need to scratch the varnish of the civilization pro- cess and to reveal truths about ourselves we want to hide? Carlos, a 35 years old lawyer, shy and restrained, leads
      a normal life until his son is shot during a fake blitz and goes into a coma. Confused, he falls into a spiral of panic and self-destruction that let him isolated from his fam-
      ily and his work. Desperate and powerless to see nothing is being done to catch the responsible of the crime, he reaches his own boundary and attempts suicide. But even this fails: the bullet gets stuck in his brain: now Carlos can die every moment or suffer severe sequels if operated. Carlos has nothing to lose any more and he sees in the fact that he survived a sign that he has to accomplish a mission. He decides to do justice by himself. Though in
      his path appears Natalia, a therapist who believes in the power of forgiveness and acceptance toward traumatism. Carlos enters an insane journey and begins a war physical against the felons who hurt his son, and psychological, against Natalia’s optimistic view.
