Event Information

Critically lauded, this superbly sinister and stylish Argentinian thriller lays bare the complacency and corruption of pre-coup Argentina, as it grips audiences all the way through to its provocative ending.

Argentinian screen heavyweight Dario Grandinetti stars as Claudio, a well-known lawyer and pillar of his community in the Granada of 1975, where the unease of the impending coup d’état is already hanging heavy in the air. After a heated altercation with a menacing man at a restaurant, Claudio and his wife Susana will meet the same stranger on their way home - an encounter that starts the lawyer out on an unthinkable road of no-return littered with death, secrets and silences. 

The assemblage of deceptive appearances and fatal disappearances that follow are perfectly imbued with a deep sense of paranoia to result in a chilling exploration of a country that has lost its moral compass in the midst of social upheaval.
