    XV edition


    Several people go on about their daily business. An artist prepares for an important performance, a policeman restores order, somewhere else a family eats dinner together. But a seemingly minor accident will disrupt their lives forever.

    When a musician absorbed by his career takes his teenage daughter for a driving lesson, a stray dog runs onto the street and the girl kills it accidentally, setting off a chain of events.

    A couple learns that their beloved daughter landed in critical condition at the hospital. Her scooter collided with the dead dog’s body. Strict and religious, they are shocked to learn the girl was driving under the influence, and the vehicle didn’t have a valid check-up.

    It turns out the dog was not homeless. It’s owner, a policeman who gets along better with animals than with people is looking for his companion, who disappeared several days ago in mysterious circumstances. The policeman suspects some unfriendly immigrants living next door could have let the dog out and when he finds out it got killed he wants revenge. But according to the law, as the owner, he could be held accountable for the damages caused by the dog.

    All these people from different backgrounds inevitably cross paths as everyone is looking for someone else to blame for the situation, struggling with their own frustrations or sense of guilt. New facts emerge testing relationships, escalating emotions and gradually leading to a dramatic confrontation in search of justice.

    The musician never gets to play his breakthrough concert. The victim’s mother ends up in jail. And the policeman discovers that the world around him is completely different than what he thought it was.

    Finally, the girl wakes up from the coma. But the world of the protagonists has changed forever.
