Diego (Albert Ammann), a Venezuelan urbanist, and Elena, a contemporary dancer from Barcelona, move to the United States with their approved visas to start a new life. Their intention is to boost their professional careers and start a family in 'the land of opportunities'. But upon entering New York airport's immigration area, they are taken to the secondary inspection room, where border officers and agents (Ben Temple, Laura Gómez, David Comrie, Colin Morgan) will subject them to an unpleasant inspection process and a psychologically grueling interrogation. Along the way, they're flagged by the border agents and forced to endure an invasive probe into their lives. During the following few hours, the fate of Elena, Diego and their dreams is placed under question as the official who interviews them reveals hidden secrets they have not yet shared with each other or disclosed in the previous application process, endangering the whole process and their mutual trust.
Bruna Cusi (Summer 1993, La Vampira de Barcelona, El sustituto ) and Alberto Ammann (Celda 211, Narcos, Betibú) star in this suffocating thriller in which they play a young couple - he is Venezuelan, she is Spanish - who travels to the United States in search of a change in life. An interrogation room always arouses tension and nervousness in those being interrogated, but the suspense is even greater if it is located in the immigration zone of the United States. Upon arriving at the immigration zone, they are immediately taken to an inspection room where they are subjected to an indiscreet and violent interrogation in which dark hidden secrets will emerge.
