Plot[]

SPOILERS AHEAD

We learn that after an individual is missing for over 48 hours, it becomes less and less likely that they will be found. The window is tight and as we reach 36 hours into the missing person's case, the police intensify their search for Samuel.

The night after their sexual encounter, Samuel confronts Carla over what she admitted and she tries to spin it into a game, which fails to fool Samuel. Polo later asks Carla whether they can be a team again, while Samuel formulates a plan to steal Carla’s phone and figure out just what she’s hiding.

Consumed by guilt, Polo begins hallucinating until Guzmán offers him some comfort, unbeknownst to him that Polo is the one who killed his sister. Ander pleads with Omar to accept their relationship but he tells him that because of his father, they can't ever be an item. As he heads back to Guzmán’s, heartbroken, Ander admits the truth about him and Polo hooking up the previous night. Guzmán is flabbergasted that his two best friends would have sexual relations in his own bed. Polo has developed an addiction to anxiety pills; he begins taking more and more as he continues to hallucinate and panic out of guilt.

At the prison, Nano warns Samuel about getting too involved, telling him he may end up in hospital like Christian if he’s not careful.

Back at home, Lu confronts Guzmán over his erratic behaviour and they wind up in a fight. As they raise their voices, it breaks up the studying that Valerio and Nadia are conducting in the room next door. Determined to help him take the edge off his rage, Valerio offers Guzmán even more drugs.

Samuel heads to Rebeka’s house soon after where they talk about her wealth. She tells him about her lack of experience and rags-to-riches story before offering him a job with her mum, telling him to think about it as he leaves. Given the easy money being offered, this could result in a better lawyer for Nano or even posting bail and getting him out of prison.

As day turns to night, Samuel and Rebeka set their plan to steal Carla's phone into motion as he plays along with Carla at the bar, while Rebeka leaves Nadia to hang around Valerio and Guzmán who continue to take drugs. She decides to get in on the action and take some too, in an effort to get Guzmán to stop.

Deciding enough is enough, Omar ditches the shop and heads to the club where he professes his love for Ander and kisses him in front of everyone on the dance floor. Smiling, the two continue to kiss, while Samuel’s plan is set into motion over a spilt drink. However, Carla manages to take her phone back during the chaos, thanks in part to Guzmán confronting Samuel on the stairs nearby. Following her into the toilets, Samuel again asks her outright what she knows but aside from a few faint glimmers, she doesn’t offer much he can go on. This again leads to them having aggressive intercourse.

Nadia confronts Guzmán over his alcohol and drug dependency, telling him she understands he’s grieving but needs to find another way to mourn his sister. Offering encouraging words, Guzmán takes her by the hand and the two kiss. Polo suffers extreme anxiety in the toilets, almost green as he talks to Ander about his condition.

After the party, Omar suffers the consequences of his actions as his father confronts him and tells him he’s to blame for what’s happening with the family. Omar snaps, yelling that his whole life is a punishment, knocking his father to the ground and telling him he doesn’t get to push him around anymore. Enraged and hurt, his father yells at him to leave and never come back. As Omar glances over at a tearful Nadia with longing eyes, he walks away into the night.

Alone, Ander pleads Polo to reveal what has been agonizing him. Polo tearfully admits to Ander that he killed Marina. As Ander stands up to leave, disgusted, Polo begs him not to tell anyone. After getting kicked out of his home, a dejected Omar ends up at Ander’s house, where he will live indefinitely.

Samuel wakes up on the sofa, naked with Carla, and spies 4 messages on her phone from Polo. Taking the phone away from her, he listens to a voicemail that implicates that Polo has confessed something, but Samuel still doesn’t quite have all the pieces to the puzzle.

In the future, Nadia tells Valerio to leave while the rest of the students try to find Samuel in the woods. Overhearing the police, a distracted Nadia wanders aimlessly through the night, thinking back to what happened in the past. Charging through the woods and breaking the silence, Omar hurries to the Inspector and finds Samuel’s blazer, covered in blood. As the students watch on, stern-faced, the Inspector takes Nadia aside where she admits that someone threatened Samuel in the hallway at school not long before he went missing.
