El Hombre que Cuida (The Watchman)

Juan gave up fishing and became caretaker of a beach house to support his wife. Now she’s left him for another man, and, feeling the villagers are mocking him, he’s retreated into a passive, solitary exile there. When his employer’s son sneaks some friends over for a wild weekend, Juan realises the house has become a cage and he’s let himself be exploited. Will he be able to break free of his self-imposed imprisonment?
