Costa (Tosar) is producing a Spanish film that's shooting on location in Cochabamba, Bolivia.

Hector (Karra Elejalde) is hungry. His wife Clara (Candela Fernández) is unwilling to make dinner. As she heads out to get some takeaway, he grabs the binoculars and looks out at the forest across from his property. There he sees a young girl (Bárbara Goenaga) removing her clothes. Hiking over to catch a better look, he is attacked by a man whose face is wrapped in blood-soaked bandages. Injured, Hector comes across a building, and a walkie-talkie. On the other end is Chico (Nacho Vigalondo) and he has some bad news -- the mystery assailant is hot on Hector's trail. Suggesting that he come up to the silo lab where he is hiding, our hero suddenly finds himself immersed in a milky liquid in a strange machine.
