Synopsis

English language Spanish sci-fi thriller starring Timothy Hutton. Best-selling science fiction author David Norton (Hutton) is invited to Mallorca to take part in a conference. On his first night there his fiancee Jane (Georgia Mackenzie) jumps from the hotel balcony to her death. Before David has a chance to recover from this unexpected shock, other people on the island start killing themselves. One of these suicides is unsuccessful. Silvia (Lucia Jiminez) survives, but all she can remember from before her attempt at death is a phone call that, when she answered it, played Billie Holiday's song, 'Gloomy Sunday'. David begins his own investigation and discovers that eight people have taken their own lives, and each received that same phone call. Joining forces with Silvia, he soon discovers that the suicides are part of a fiendish plot designed to place him in a position where he holds the power of life and death over hundreds of people he has never even met...
