An airport holding room sets the stage for this Ecuadorian cinematic Lord of the Flies-sequel tale of humanity left to its own devices. After a group of strangers are detained from their flight, they become unwilling roommates and companions as they try to figure out when they will be allowed to leave. Among them is Prometeo, an eccentric magician trying to show everyone the bright side of the situation. Unfortunately for him, chaos seems to reign supreme. In a place where one is usually going somewhere, this film shows how people become disoriented when forced to stay.
