Overview

With traffic accidents in Argentina on the rise, the black market strives to get rich from the personal tragedies that litter the streets. Sosa (Ricardo Darín) is an ambulance-chasing lawyer with questionable ethics. Lujan (Martina Gusman) is a young, idealistic country doctor new to the city. As their lives become intertwined, they form an unlikely romance that becomes threatened by Sosa’s turbulent past.

Ricardo Darín (star of The Secret in Their Eyes) and Martina Gusman give unforgettable performances in the gripping and highly acclaimed thriller, an exhilarating journey into the darker side of Buenos Aires life from leading Argentinean director Pablo Trapero. A hard-hitting, edge-of-your seat experience that juggles the emotional turmoil of its riveting central characters with a visceral physicality that grabs your attention from the start and never lets go.
