Xabier (Gorka Otxoa) goes for a job interview. What he doesn’t know is that he has already been selected. CORPSA offers to pay him 80,000 if he agrees to be cloned. But more than just a lot of money depends on his decision. Still, Xabier isn’t sure. What if runs into someone identical to himself one day? Who can reassure him he won’t be replaced?
