*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Imagine Sergio's reaction when he wakes up after a night of heavy drinking with a terrible hangover only to take a phone call from a stranger that wants to inform him about a finished mission he supposedly commissioned. Sergio is a fiction writer who hasn't seen the recognition he wants and feels he deserves. The caller proceeds to ask him for the ten million pesetas Sergio promised the man for killing his wife. It's clear the man on the other side of the line knows what he's talking about, but poor Sergio can't make sense of the whole thing, even less not being completely sober.

What follows is a nightmare on the life of Sergio. Did he, or didn't he ordered his wife's demise? Well, stay tuned to find out, as we won't tell you! The only positive thing lies in the fact that Sergio gets to write the book that will sell because the new novel follows what he has experienced.

Director Carlos Perez Ferre, who also contributed to the screen treatment, had a good idea for a film. The only problem lies in its execution, because he doesn't add much to what has already been done in the genre. The cast does a decent job with the material following Mr. Perez Ferre's direction.
