    • Synopsis
    • Nader, a petty crook, is obliged to go to a tiny island in
      the south toflush out Chris Barnes, the former jet-set king
      and friend to the stars, who a mysterious partner wants to
      trap. Daniel has suddenly dumped wife and kids to come
      to the island to meet the enigmatic young woman he’s been
      writing to over the Internet. On the way, Daniel and Nader
      decide to switch identities, convinced that it will help them
      achieve their goals. In the hotel run by Barnes, who reigns
      like a hysterical dictator, everyone tries to take a vacation or
      achieve their mission, but no one is really what they seem.
      Each passing day causes more trouble in Daniel’s life
      and costs Nader, taken hostage, another finger. Between
      madness, mockery, deeply fake feelings and sincere
      manipulations, the affair quickly and radically degenerates,
      up until a huge surprise at the end.
