In Argentina, a country that has been broken down and corrupted by poverty, Pablo (Matias Desiderio) and Mario (Brian Maya) are best friends and fun-loving thieves in the Buenos Aires neighborhood of Palermo. Although they come from very different backgrounds, the two commit petty crimes that help Pablo support his family and Mario become financially independent from his own. In a twist of fate, and because of their own ignorance, they become involved in an express-kidnapping that will change their lives forever. This tragedy, Shakespearean in scope and Scorsesian in execution, triggers and unmasks a series of dramatic events, among them a passionate affair between Mario and Pablo’s sister Julieta (Manuela Pal). Unable to escape their past, and faced with an uncertain future, the love these two friends share is exposed while their loyalty and integrity are tested.
