He's about to show them why they should never have messed with him.

Federico Anduaga is a shy and feeble architect who’s been a victim of a violent and abusive environment. When he gets a new job at a construction company, he finds himself involved in a corruption scheme. The pressure he suffers at work added to the constant abuse will lead him to transform his fear into the wrath that will push him to an unexpected limit of his own humanity. Carlos Meléndez brilliantly creates an atmospheric story about violence and abuse, with rich characters who are each struggling to survive in his or her own way. It is a story about corruption, but it is also a story about transformation, which will not only leave you guessing, but also mesmerized and stunned.
