In a dreary restaurant, only a few customers remain at the end of the day. Boredom reigns, and everyone is hiding their frustrations, starting with the owner, a victim of his castrator wife. But when the place is the scene of a heist, roles could well change…

Another young filmmaker who started off in short films, and who a few years back signed the script for Marco Dutra’s unhinged When I Was Alive (Dutra is also the co-director of Good Manners,this year in competition). Gabriela enters the big league by signing the script and direction of this savage one location film, reminiscent both of Sam Peckinpah’s and Tarantino’s work.
