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.

This film is also featured in the 2017 Film Festival’s HBO Ibero American Competition Film Category
