When professional sound recordist Lourdes is hired at the last minute on an interview for a popular Mexican TV show, she finds the crew unwelcoming, the snacks sparse, and the vibe sour. The interview subject also happens to be a media tycoon in the middle of a sexual assault scandal. Lourdes tries her best to be professional, but she soon bears witness to a series of ugly truths about the man whose voice she's charged with capturing, as well as the entire landscape of her profession.
