Ernesto and Rosario are a young couple who works at a sleazy motel, trying to put some money aside ahead of their baby’s arrival.
Their establishment does not witness anything unusual for what it offers: a simple, convenient getaway for couples to find satisfaction from prying eyes.
When one of their customers leave an unexpected mess, Ernesto becomes uncharacteristically jumpy. He’s had a side income for awhile, a venture he’s kept secret from his wife.
In the commotion, his wife accused him of the filthiest of acts, but he was just being human. And opportunistic.
But there were too many eyes on this motel, one too many animals watching. And preying.
