Salvador works as a night watchman at a construction site. Normally nothing much happens, but precisely on the day that his wife is about to give birth, the problems just keep mounting; from an inexplicable theft to the discovery of a dead body.
A dead body is found in an abandoned van near a construction site just outside Mexico City. Night watchman Salvador, who arrives when all the workers go home, didn’t notice anything unusual, he tells the police. His colleague Hugo seems to know more, but plays dumb. The arrival of a mysterious young woman upends Salvador’s life entirely. And that on the evening he wanted to get home early to witness his child’s birth.
In his debut feature El vigilante, filmmaker Diego Ros shows mastery in the creation of tension: without once leaving the construction site, he increasingly corners his poor protagonist, resulting in a dark, mysterious thriller.
