No detailed information has been received

from the centre of Barcelona so far.

A whole building has been closed off

as a preventative measure

due to an unknown virus

more than twenty people are trapped

inside the building.

Other than the residents inside,

there are police officers and fire fighters

and among them, two T.V. reporters

that are accompanying them .

It has not been clarified as to

what type of virus it is.

Neither the authorities

nor specialists have yet been able

according to the last contact with the

inside, there may be only one survivor.

It appears to be the T.V. reporter

who entered the building with the firemen

in order to cordon off a secure area

of several blocks around the building.

We can confirm that the situation

is now under military control.

Were in.

Roger, proceed.

Lets go.

Guzman, Lucas, third floor.

Cover me.

In here.

All set .

Second floor, devices planted .

Going up, third floor.

Lucas. Lucas. Sh*t!

Lucas. What the f*** were you doing?


Devices planted.


Lets go.

Whats that?

Sh*t, sh*t, sh*t.

Proceeding to activate detonation.

You have four minutes to evacuate.

Go, go, go!

Come on, lets go. Lets get out of here.

Are you okay? Can you breathe?

Lets get out of here.



I dont have a shot!

Shoot! Shoot!


Youre a doctor,

you can help me.

Evacuate. Three minutes remaining.

The rules.

Do it. Do it. Do it!

Come on, we have to get out of here.

Help me! Im up here!

Its her. We cant leave her here.

No, no, dont even think about it.

Theres no time!

Get out of here! Ill handle it.

Youre crazy.


Okay, okay, its okay.

You have to trust me, okay?

One minute until detonation.

Look at me. Look at me!

Were going to get out of here.


Hello, ngela.

Its okay,

theyre to stop you from hurting yourself.

Thats it.

Do you remember anything

about what happened?


Stay still.

No. No.

Its all right.

Where am I?

We just want to make sure youre okay.

Let her rest.

Pardon me.

Could you tell me where the wedding is?

I think I must have drunk too much.

My daughter-in-law sent me for a lie-down,

and I think Ive overslept.

Sorry, but I dont know

what youre talking about.

I dont know where I am. It must be my head.

Okay, neither do I know where we are.

Then were in a bit of a fix.

Have you seen anyone else around here?

Okay, how about this?

Ill go and try to find out where we are.

You stay here. Stay calm and wait.

Someone will come and get you soon.

Okay, but if you see my daughter-in-law,

tell her Im here.

Dont let them forget me.

Yes, yes, Ill tell her.

How is she?

Shes awake. She seems calm.

Were wasting our time.

This is the third test

and all have come out negative.

The girls fine. There are no signs .

She was exposed for over six hours in there.

We have to make sure.

They really hurt.

Okay. Ill loosen them a bit.


Weve got a problem in the infirmary.

The girls gotten out.

Get her. Use your weapons if necessary.

How much longer?

Its processing, two minutes.

Ive got her, shes heading upstairs.

Hold it!

Come on!

Shes heading for the dining room corridor.

Stop! Dont move!


Go, go, go!

Go, go.



Out of the way!

Weve got her. I said move!

Cant you hear me?

Help me!

I said move!

After them!

Hold it!


Come on, come on!

Lets go, move it!

Stop! Hands up! Dont move!

Stay there! Dont move!

Weve got her. Awaiting orders.

What is this? Where the hell are we?

Lower your weapons.

We have the test results. Shes clean.

Who are you?

Take her to her cabin.

You should get some rest.


Its okay, no more restraints, I promise.

I asked you who you were.

Please accept my apologies.

Im Dr Ricarte, the medical protocol .

I want to speak to my superiors.

Your superiors sent you here, Im afraid.

And my partner?

I assume youre referring to Corporal Lucas.

We had to carry out some extra tests.

Just routine.

Youll be able to see him soon.

Why? What the hell are we doing here?

This wasnt part of the operation.

Its the only way to ensure total isolation

and you know it.

Isolation from what? Were clean, arent we?

Youve obviously already checked.

The situation is more complicated

than you think.

There was another outbreak

close to Barcelona.

Luckily, we have it under control,

but we cant make any more mistakes.

Dont tell me, a wedding.

Only one survivor,

but I see youve already met.

Well! New passengers. How wonderful!

And now if youll excuse me,

Im sure Captain Ortega would be delighted

to show you his boat.


I imagine you boarded with that group

at the last minute?

So it would seem. Im Guzman.

Come, Ill show you around.

So youre in charge here?

Dont be fooled. The ones in charge

are the ones with the money.

And those doctors are paying me

enough to retire on.

Forty years at sea are a lot.

So after this, Im going home.

So the doctors are in control.

And just so we dont forget,

theyve brought their own little army.

I believe youve already had the pleasure.

How are we doing?

28 knots.

North-easterly wind coming in stronger.

In a few hours

well be entering a low pressure area.

Very good.

Reduce speed to a minimum,

with any luck itll pass us by.

Sure. Were not in any rush.

Gorostiaga is our bridge officer.

From Bilbao.

A good man!

Pilot, its easier. And call me Goro.
