Synopsis: Set in Caracas during the 24 hours of a controversial medical strike, LA HORA CERO follows La Parca, a tattooed hit-man, as he takes an elite hospital hostage in an attempt to save his girlfriend and her child.
La Parca soon becomes an unlikely hero, a 'champion for the poor'. Until Parca's stunt begins to divide the entire nation and violence begins to spread within the hospital and throughout the city, putting everything, including his girl and her child, in dire jeopardy.
