Produced by Pedro Almodóvar, Luis Ortega's stylish, pop-infused, true-crime thriller traces the rise of one of Argentina's most notorious serial killers — Carlos Robledo Puch, the longest-serving prisoner in Argentine history. It's 1971 and Carlitos (Lorenzo Ferro) is an angel-faced Buenos Aires teen — and a successful small-time thief. When he meets the handsome and hard-as-nails Ramón (Chino Darín) at his new school, the pair are instantly drawn to one another and soon embark on an escalating journey of violent criminality.
