A security guard working in a Mexico City gym withdraws into isolation as his body is slowly consumed by a mysterious sickness in this haunting drama from first-time writer/director Sebastian Hofmann. Every day at work, Beto (Alberto Trujillo) is surrounded by vibrant, healthy bodies. Meanwhile, Beto's own body appears to have declared war on itself. His only solution is to wall himself away from the world in his small apartment, and attempt to stop the decay by injecting himself with embalming fluid. Though a friendly relationship with the pretty woman who owns the gym offers Beto a momentary reprieve from his suffering, every day the prospect of living a normal life again seems to slip further out of reach.
