In the mid-70s the regional economy drew a lot of scoundrels into Uruguay. Institutions were bankrupted; there was a military government; the subversives were behind bars and, for certain sections of the Brazilian and Argentinian economies with a low reputation, the Uruguayan financial market seemed like an ideal place to make money disappear. That is the moment when Humberto Brause begins a meteoric race in the buying and selling foreign currency.
Federico Veiroj keeps growing as a storyteller with his 5th film, a quirky period thriller, ripe with mystery, love and deadpan humour. A sort of Latin “Wall Street Wolf”, the story goes through different decades to dig deep into savage capitalism growing in three different countries: Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay, playing with the topics of thriller genre, all, with a scent of intelligent black humour.
