Unemployed and without purpose, Cetarti (Daniel Hendler)’s days seem blurred and interchangeable—until he learns that his mother and brother have been shot to death in Lapachito, a town in the north of Argentina. Roused from his sofa in Buenos Aires, Cetarti journeys to Lapachito in order to collect the life insurance. There he meets Duarte (Leonardo Sbaraglia), a local thug involved in kidnapping schemes and friend to the man who murdered Cetarti’s kin. A hugely precarious alliance is formed—one that drags Cetarti into ever-darker, unpredictable places.
This grittily absorbing new feature from Adrián Caetano draws us into an intricate web of mystery, crime and loyalty.
