Synopsis

 

Early morning, in a Government building: all the employees have been called for a special meeting.

While they get settled, a violent earthquake suddenly buries all of them beneath nine storeys of concrete and twisted metal.

Stuck beneath the rubbles of the building, the few survivors – amongst which Martin, the night watchman, and Fernando, a senior government official – are left alone in the dark, clinging on for their lives while desperately waiting for help.
