Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Director Xavi Puebla offers a bitter satire of international business practices with this tale of corporate ambition centering on the competition for a prime human resources position at a major pharmaceuticals firm. When the head of Farewell-Gutmann's human resources department dies, Lazaro (Adolfo Fernandez), Adela (Ana Fernandez), and Fernando (Lluis Soler) all start to jockey for position within the company. Lazaro projects a larger than life image despite the fact that he is broken on the inside, Adela overcompensates for the pain of her personal life by being an obsessive worker, and Fernando is more than willing to bend the rules in order to advance his career. As depressive, alcoholic divorcee Lazaro attempts to land his former brother-in-law Santiago (Pep Anton Munoz) a job at the firm under the agreement that Santiago will help engineer a romantic reunion between the former spouses, Adela interviews epileptic Martin (Sergio Caballero) for the same position and Fernando considers hiring pretty Ukranian immigrant Nadia (Marta Novotna). Little do the prospective employees realize that the toughest part of the application process is an upcoming interview with the dreaded Luger (Hector Colome Hammer) - a frightening and powerful man who pushes them to the absolute limit in a sadistic series of grueling corporate tests.
