- Don't shout.|- Don't shout.

Sorry, sorry.

- I'll get dressed, okay?|- Okay.



Do you know where my pants are?

In the living room.


Last night everything|fell out of my pocket

and I'm missing a two euro coin.

It's only two euros.|You can pay next time.

Don't worry about it.



Can I have some coffee?

It's burning.


You're welcome.

I'm sorry but something urgent|came up...

Do you mind if I make a call?

There's something wrong with my cell,|there's no coverage.

This isn't working either.

Hold on.

Mine has no coverage either.

What time does yours say?

- Just past 7:
30.|- Just past 7:30?

Yeah, the day got away from us.

Listen, I really need to be alone.|I'm sorry.

No one around, at this time?|Even on a Sunday...

Has something happened?|Did you hear anything?

None of the channels are working.

It's been like that since I got up.

What about the internet?

...in a state of emergency.

Please stay calm|and remain in your homes

until emergency crews arrive.

Contact them and follow|their instructions. Thank you.

Holy sh*t! What is that?

A temporary evacuation is underway...

There, out back.

- Got any binoculars?|- No.

...until emergency crews arrive.

The camera...

This is a message|from the Department of Defense.

- This is the zoom, right?|- Yeah.

How big is it?

Look, it's turning very slowly.


I think I can figure it out.|If I time how long it takes to turn

I can work out its size.|Got a calculator?

Yeah, you want it?

Yes, please.

Hey, excuse me...

- Julio.|- Oh, I'm Julia.

What a coincidence.

I don't know why I thought|your name was Luisa.

After last night no wonder|I can't remember...

By the way, where did we meet?

Aren't you worried|about anybody?

I guess I should call my family,|they're all in Badajoz.

If the phones are working later.

You must have somewhere to go.


Yeah, my apartment.

I live in Hortaleza.

I'm renting a room|from some friends of my parents.

I can leave if you want.

No, wait till I find the calculator.

Should I leave after that?


Sorry, what was the calculator|for again?

There's somebody there.


- Angel.|- Hi.

This is...|What was your name again?


I'm Julia, what a coincidence.

He's a friend...

I think you were right|to stay home.

People were so quick to take off.

Where could be better|than right here?

Is there anyone else|left in the building?

Actually, I don't know.

Trucks showed up around nine|with the military and they organized

the cars into lines.|I think everyone left but...

I don't really know|because I didn't open the door.

I watched TV all day|until it stopped working.

Is your internet working?

What have you been doing all day?|Didn't you hear me ringing?

Where did they take everyone?

I don't know, the suburbs,|the mountains...

Not far, because|there are more there.

More what?

More ships.|Don't you know what's going on?

Angel, is your internet working?

Worldwide they don't know, but in Spain|more than 30 have appeared.

Especially over the cities.

Have you been in bed all day?|I tried ringing the bell...

How did you know she was here?


Why didn't you think|she'd left with the others?

Because Julia always parks her car|in front of mine.

And it was there this morning,|that's how.

But you said you didn't go outside.|How did you see it?

From the window?



My internet isn't working.



I'm going...

to the bathroom.

No, I'm leaving.

I'll call you later, Julia.

I think it's almost...

Nobody's seen anything|coming out, right?


I think they come down from the middle.|That's why we can't see them from here.

What's up with your neighbor?|Is he always so transparent?


It's obvious he stayed|because he saw your car

and knew you hadn't left, right?

How do you know|about all this stuff?

I'm an industrial designer.

Actually, I haven't finished my degree,

but I work making signs,|drawings, models...

I'm working on something amazing.

Some friends of my parents...|Well, the ones I'm renting from...

They're going to be in a parade|in their neighborhood

and they asked me to make this.

It's a float, something like this.

Well, more or less, okay?

And they want a car to pull the float,

but what I did was put the car

inside it.

Sorry, I'm really tired.

I'm going to bed.

See you tomorrow.

It's okay, it's me.

- What's wrong? What time is it?|- It's late, almost morning.

I was looking at the ship

and I thought, sh*t.|Anything can happen anytime.


I thought we could take turns|keeping watch.

Don't worry, I'll go first, okay?

But what happened?

No, it's just in case.

I'll wake you up|if something happens, okay?

- Where are you going?|- The living room, stay there.

No, I'm not sleepy.

- Quick, get up.|- What's going on?

- Are they attacking?|- Get washed.



Where have you been?

They were taking people|to El Escorial...

Sweetheart, I'm so glad you're here.

They were taking people to El Escorial|and you weren't there...

but there were people|from this neighborhood.

I called and you didn't answer.|And since you had gone out...

By the way, I'm not alone.


Carlos, this is...

- Sorry, what was your name?|- Julio.

What a coincidence!|Like me.

- Hi, Julio.|- Hi.

Feeling any better?


You're lucky Julia saw you

from the window. If you'd blacked out|one street up, nobody'd have seen you.
