Film synopsis: 
A couple of Italian tourists in Madrid are shooting a video with their camera. When they get back to their hotel, after a fashion party, they step into a man who's running away from a bag-snatcher. They decide to hide and film the incredibly cruel scene. They go on recording until the bag-snatcher leaves the poor man on the floor. After that, the bag-snatcher realizes the couples is there and brutally hits the woman. The guy keeps on recording. The girl gets pushed on the floor, so the guy leaves the camera and begins to fight with the bag-snatcher. The girl keeps on recording ...until the end.
