Do you want one?

We bought chocolate already.

So what?

You can have it if you want. I don't want it.

Strawberry. It's better.

I thought you didn't want any.

Every time we go to the supermarket

you get grumpy.


Excuse me.


I am not grumpy.


Did you test it?


-Did you try the light bulb?


How can you be so lazy, Coco?

What's wrong now?

Still grumpy for the money.

Not only that but you buy only one, Coco.


And this? Did we need this?

Yes, we need them.

We have some at home.

Coco, things deteriorate

and need replacement, now and then.

Like that T-shirt you're wearing.

When I get home I will trash it.

Pipi, you are really beautiful.

Shut up.

No, Coco, no f***ing way.

I'm serious.

We sell the house, the car, everything.

We get a great f***ing house

in the Cordoba Sierras.

-What's so f***ing funny?

-The Sierras, you? Suddenly a hippie?

You? You can't live without your computer.

What do you mean?

That's not being a hippie.

Coco, please, you are a p*ssy.

You can't spend a day without clean socks.

You would come back home running!

ln the Cordoba Sierras, I would go barefoot.

Don't get mad, Coco.

Don't get sensitive on me.

You are a city creature, that's all.

You are not designed for nature.


What you do mean, no?

Coco, don't be stubborn.

Okay, keep trying, keep trying.

What's up, Horacio?

-Stocking up?

-Yes, yes, stocking up.

That's impressive. It seems...

You are ready for war!

I'm sorry, it was my cigar.

No, it's my nervous cough.

It became chronic.

But it's fine.

-Well, goodbye, Horacio.


And good luck!

You, too.



Fine, here we are.

No, it didn't ring.

Don't know why.

It was off. The battery probably died.

What is it? No.

Let's see.

Seven is now the number of countries

affected by the virus.

Besides Mexico, the U.S.,

Canada, Spain and the U.K.,

-We have new cases in two other...

-Okay, I'll call you later.

The alert level was raised by the WHO to 4,

on the 6-level scale for epidemics.

Pipi, come here for a second.

Those were the words

of the World Health Organization,

Before the quick virus expansion.

Before the rumor of closed trades

and the stop of activities, the chaos starts...

So what did your parents say?

Are they having a good time?

Fine, I guess...

I didn't ask.

Coco, are you autistic? Why didn't you ask?

They were worried about this.

We agreed to talk later.


Who is it?

A recording.

They want one person

per family to go to the lobby.


-Wait, wait.

-Give it to me.

-Do you want a tangerine?

-I am going there.

Take it with you.

-What is happening?

-The took Caraza's wife. She was ill.

They took Caraza as well. To do tests.

Their daughters are away.

They said someone would come

to inform us, but so far, nothing.

Good evening.

Good evening, Zanutto. What's up?

Fine, fine. Awesome.

Is the council meeting now?

Didn't you get the call?

They took Caraza and his wife

and the building was closed down.

No one enters or leaves, Zanutto.

Someone is coming.

-Can you hear me?

-What's going on?

As you already know,

the building is under quarantine.

There is no reason to panic.

It's only a preventive measure.

Please stay in your apartments.

Keep contact with neighbors to a minimum.

Our doctors will visit to ensure

you don't have the symptoms.

Now, how many people

are living in the building?

It's a new building. It's us and our families.

Give me a minute. Lange, you are three.

-Three and one maid.

-Don't say anything.

We don't have to tell them a thing.
