The Zero Hour (La Hora Cero) is a gritty, face-paced heist film and the highest grossing Venezuelan film of all time. Set in Caracas during the 24 hours of a controversial medical strike, it follows Parca, a tattooed hit-man, as he takes an elite hospital hostage in order to save his girlfriend. What seemed like a perfect plan will end in a frenetic outcome, as Parca is forced to come to terms with his past and discovers that his worst enemies are much closer than he ever imagined. A love story told in the midst of chaos, La Hora Cero is a timely and universal story about the mythic rise to power and the inevitable fall from grace.
Written and directed by Diego Velasco.
