Juan finds refuge in his job as a watchman after his wife leaves him for another man. His dignity and pride are put to the test when the young son of the mansion’s owner shows up, unannounced, with a friend and a local girl. Juan is forced to make a decision that will affect the rest of his life when their presence turns into a nightmare. Winner last year of the Yellow Robin Award at the Curaçao International Film Festival Rotterdam, Andújar’s debut feature offers a unique perspective on racism and social class.

Juan encuentra refugio en su trabajo como centinela después de que su esposa lo deja por otro hombre. Su dignidad y orgullo son puestos a prueba cuando el joven hijo del dueño de la mansión que Juan cuida aparece, sin previo aviso, con un amigo y una chica del pueblo. Juan tomará una impactante decisión cuando la presencia de este trío se convierta en una pesadilla. Ganador el año pasado del Premio Yellow Robin en el Festival Internacional de Cine de Curazao en Rotterdam, el debut de Andújar ofrece una perspectiva única sobre el racismo y la lucha de clases.
