Three stories happen simultaneously within one Condominium. Three stories about the limits human beings will go to in the simple attempt to be happy. Clotilde lives in number 24. She is an elderly lady and the sole responsible of her son, Javier, who is schizophrenic. But they have found an equilibrium to survive their misery. An equilibrium that may be broken at any time. Number 7 is home to Janet, a pregnant prostitute. She lives with Leslie, her junkie colleague. They know they have no future. But they have a plan. They need to go to Miami. The father of Janet's unborn child has the money they need. And they have decided to take the respect they are owed. Above the girls lives Fredy. He is in love with Álvaro, who has AIDS. Together they have established a shelter where people infected with HIV can find company. But Álvaro is dimming. Fredy won't accept it, but Alvaro has little time left. Three stories to continue sharing the same Condominium. ¿Where do YOU live?Written by

Three stories taking place in a Spanish condominium are shown. An elderly woman is taking care of her son who can't walk. She is dying herself and is ready to kill him. Two male lovers are living together but one is dying of AIDS. His mother wants him all to herself. A pregnant unmarried woman and her sister plan to rob the married man who got her pregnant and escape to another country.
Supposedly this was made to ask the question to the viewer of who you think should live. You'll probably vote for everybody to die. The acting is actually not bad but the stories are uninvolving and predictable. They move VERY slow (even for an 85 minute movie) and I was bored halfway through. I was always one (or two steps) ahead of it. The last 15 minutes (when every story ends) IS exciting and well-done--but it's too little too late. And what is the point of showing characters going to the bathroom? It's shown THREE times here! Very dull. I give it a 2 for the acting and ending but you can safely skip this.
