The Argentinean Oscar candidate! Funny, romantic, surreal and – above all – unpredictable: a portrait of two men who leave the boredom of their lives behind.

The simple clerk Morán is completely bored with his work at a bank in Buenos Aires. He’s convinced that things couldn’t be any worse, not even in prison. Without hesitation, he takes a large amount of cash from the bank’s safe and disappears without any trouble. No one ever notices him anyway. Morán then offers half of the loot to his colleague Román – on one condition: Román must hide the money until Morán is released from prison after serving his sentence, which he’ll voluntarily accept. This audacious plan is only the prelude to a hilarious, romantic and unpredictable story about two very similar men. Their strange pact completely changes each of their lives – Morán’s in prison and Román’s on the way to stash the money, where he meets a mysterious woman.
