In the vein of other psychological Spanish thrillers like OPEN YOUR EYES and INTACTO, EQUIS explores what happens when a person can longer trust their own version of reality. Javier (a homicide detective) wakes up one morning in a foreign bed with no recollection of the previous evening. Brushing this off as the unfortunate outcome of a night filled with heavy drinking, he goes to work. But when the murder case he is assigned to leads him back to the same unfamiliar house, on the same street, Javier knows something is very wrong. As he investigates a murder in which he is the only suspect, Javier develops a strange and intense relationship with the victim's family, as well as a woman, who while beautiful, cannot be trusted. In the end, it is up to Javier to unearth the truth before it buries him.
