Storyline

Miguel, a Civil Engineer and workaholic, goes to work on Christmas day as he does every day of the week. But this Christmas day will be unlike any other. An accident lands Miguel alone and stranded inside a construction hole on the building site. With no signal on his mobile and nobody around Miguel looks inside his briefcase hoping to find something, anything that might help get him out of his hole. In his briefcase he finds a strange letter, a letter that leaves him with one burning ambition - get home. Written by Tommy Draper

Christmas spirit
7 January 2007 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

A simple story about human redemption that is brilliantly realized on the screen thanks to stand-out performances from the entire cast and tight direction by Guadencio.

A workaholic engineer falls into construction site hole on Christmas Eve. Among the papers of his overturned briefcase he finds a letter. After reading it he is desperate to return to his wife. During the long and eventful journey home he learns a great deal about the human spirit.

Like a man turning water into wine, Guadencio was given a simple script and a budget of 7,000 Euro and, in just four days, he produced a gem of a film.

This guy is one to watch.
