SYNOPSIS: It’s Halloween morning and Tito (Javier Molina) is about to get out of the drug game. He and his traumatically brain-injured brother Pacci (Gabriel Furman), are finally opening up “Maria’s”, the restaurant of their dreams with a little live salsa band in the back. But when Pacci starts seeing and hearing people that aren’t there, their lives are put in jeopardy. What starts out as the best day ever turns into the worse day of their lives and changes everything for Tito and Pacci in ways they never expected.
