Apasionante triller sobre un accidentado robo a un laboratorio medico en donde se guardan substancias biológicas letales, mezclado con el drama de una familia grande que sufre una serie de percances que permiten que todos los integrantes muestren lo que valen, aun el más humilde de estos.
Todo ocurre muy rápidamente, en dos días. De Noche-Buena a Navidad. En una prosa veloz, para la cual hay que estar concentrado ante el peligro de descarrilar.
