Frank (Ramón Medina from the soap opera “El señor de los cielos”) rents rooms in Nadine’s building for his illicit activities. Nadine is fine with looking the other way as long as she is not directly involved. But when the body of a man he killed a couple of days ago and the merchandise that man carried inside go missing, Frank and his henchmen begin a room by room search of the building with Nadine in tow. But then, the tenants start dropping like flies. Is a killer hidden among them? Herrera Guerra’s debut film is a tense and entertaining crime thriller with a twist that will leave audiences gasping for air.

Frank (Ramón Medina de la telenovela “El señor de los cielos”) alquila habitaciones en el edificio de Nadine para sus actividades ilícitas. Nadine no tiene problema alguno en voltear la cara siempre y cuando no esté directamente involucrada en las acciones del hampón. Pero cuando el cuerpo de un hombre al que mató hace un par de días y la mercancía que llevaba dentro desaparecen, Frank y sus secuaces comienzan a buscar habitación por habitación con Nadine a cuestas. Los inquilinos pronto comienzan a caer como moscas y no porque Frank haya apretado el gatillo. ¿Habrá un asesino escondido entre ellos? Herrera Guerra hace su debut en el cine con este thriller tenso y entretenido con un giro que dejará al público casi sin aliento
