Death, cockroaches and Tom Cruise come crashing together in this absurd black comedy from first-time filmmaker Iván Wild. The residents of the once-glorious "Edificio Royal" teeter on the edge of sanity as their building begins literally to fall to pieces. An old man with Alzheimer's is convinced a portrait of Tom Cruise in A FEW GOOD MEN is his successful military son; an embalmer is forced to bring his appalling work home; his wife calls into a cheesy TV psychic to help interpret her recurring dream featuring Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie and–who else?–Tom Cruise. Official Selection, 2013 Miami and Cartagena Film Festivals.
