The Invisible Guest

Mr. Doria?

Virginia Goodman.

I came on behalf of your

lawyer, Felix Leiva.

Nice to meet you.

- Please come in.

- Thank you.

- Two minutes and I'll finish dressing.

- Sure.

Information provided

by members of armed groups

who withdrew and who contribute to

the search for the disappeared.

Here, the news of the

day and this morning

they held the

funeral of Laura Vidal,

known photographer

and visual artist,

allegedly killed by her

lover Adrian Doria,

who was recently awarded the

prestigious European awards

for Innovation and

Business Development,

as entrepreneur of the year'.

Doria, who had recently

launched in the Asian market,

his company 'Go Global Tech Media',

pleads innocence and claims to

be the victim of a conspiracy.

I expected you later, Ms. Goodman.

Yes, I'm afraid there's been

a mishap.

I tried to talk to Felix,

but he's not responding.

He's traveling.

But he assured me he had everything

under control, he had a lead...

- that would change everything.

- Yes.

This he told me the last

time I talked to him.

But then I didn't know

what I know now

- and that he doesn't know yet.

- Meaning?

It's quite possible that you'll

be compelled to testify tonight.

- What are you saying?

- My contacts in court

assure me that the prosecution

has a brand new witness,

that could provide a definitive

turning point in your case.

No word yet on who he is, but they

are transferring him to the courts,

to give a deposition within

the next three hours.

I told the truth.

There are gaps in your statement, Mr.

Doria

and I need details.

The reliability of your testimony

is based on the details.

With them, I can convince the

world that you're innocent.

And I assure you that I can.

So far, I have never lost

a case, in any process.

But I need you to cooperate.

The police has turned this place in a cell.

They watch me 24 hours a day.

Don't you think that if I had more to say,

I would have told you already?

They will request your immediate

incarceration, Mr. Doria.

We have 180 minutes to review

everything from the beginning.

So I would stop complaining

and get down to business.

Good.

First things first.

What were you and the victim

doing in that hotel?

They arranged for a meeting there.

Laura and I had been seeing

each other for a few months.

Someone who found out was

blackmailing us.

We followed his instructions.

He asked for 100,000 euros.

It's better to pay for the silence

of someone facing a millionaire divorce.

No, I never wanted to divorce Sonia.

I love her.

Why that hotel, three hundred

kilometers from your lives?

I don't know.

Weren't you suspicious that the appointment

was arranged in such an isolated place?

- What does it matter whether it's one hotel or another?

- Had you and your lover been there before?

The problem is that I have been

accused of murder, Mrs. Goodman.

Everything's important, Mr. Doria.

Anyway, it's all right.

First, let's talk about the message

you received on your cell phone.

We had been waiting for a couple

of hours when it arrived.

What's up?

He has your mobile.

He just sent a message

from your cell.

I'll tell you everything. Room 715.

Hotel Bellavista.

It's a trap.

We're leaving.

Adrian?

I was unconscious for a few minutes...

and when I woke up, the nightmare

started.

What's the first thing

you remember?

The knocks on the door.

Police!

Are you OK?

Police!

Open the door.

Move away.

Laura! Hey!

- Can you hear me? Laura?

- Open, please!

- Laura!
