Cánovas' debut feature film is a stylish and engaging thriller as well as a satire of contemporary corporate culture of work commitment and data privacy contradicted by the presence of surveillance cameras recording every corner of the building and the employees every moment. Sofía Cuevas, played by the always graceful Maribel Verdú, undertakes the investigation of suicides that have taken place in a big company. Meeting old friends won't make it easier for her but she will manage to uncover the very human stories behind the suicides in that glass and metal building, whose coldness is highlighted by the blue shades of the cinematography.
