A scathing comedy about a family business and its meddling boss, who increasingly loses control of everything.
Julio Blanco appears to be the perfect boss: capable, charismatic, and caring. But cracks appear in this façade when he has to deal with a fired employee, a depressed production manager, and a love-struck intern. In a grotesque race against time, he desperately tries to solve their problems, crossing all kinds of ethical boundaries in the process.
The movie is shown as part of the Award Ceremony, after the awarding of the prizes.
