Argentinian crime drama directed by Pablo Trapero based on real events from the 1980s. The clan Puccio is a middle-class family presided over by iron-fisted Arquimedes (Guillermo Francella). Recently unemployed, he conspires with his eldest son Alejandro (Peter Lanzani) to kidnap members of local wealthy families and hold them to ransom, unbeknownst to his wife Epifania (Lili Popovich) and the rest of his family. With the local police force agreeing to turn a blind eye, Arquimedes can get away with anything. Cracks begin to appear in the family stronghold, however, as Alejandro envisages a different life for himself and other family members begin to suspect.
