Carlos, a bank executive, begins his morning routine by taking his kids to school. As he starts the car he receives an anonymous phone call informing him that there's a bomb under his seat. A stranger's voice tells him that he only has a few hours to gather together a large amount of cash: if he doesn't, his car will blow up.
"What would we do if faced with the threat of losing everything? Our house, our success, our job, our family? What if we had to face the possibility of being left totally alone? How far would we go to have it all? That is the thread that drives this film, the transitions, the day-to-day decisions people make when thinking only about their own benefit without considering or caring that their actions may be detrimental to others. [...] But in life, some people gain and others lose; some are deceitful and others trusting. In the end, it is ‘every man for himself' in a world where all manner of things happen and are soon forgotten."
