A surprising police thriller from Argentina. Buenos Aires, 1980. Detective Chavez is a happily-married family man, considered one of the toughest law enforcers in the capital. He’s called to solve the mysterious murder of one of the richest men in Argentina. At the scene of the crime he meets a handsome young policeman named El, who volunteers to go undercover to catch the killer. His task is to seduce the victim’s alleged lover, a wealthy drag performer. During the investigation Chavez grows concerned about El enjoying his undercover work, and the various romantic encounters it entails, just a bit too much.
What begins as an ordinary task becomes a personal one, revealing hidden sides of Chavez’s personality. Academy Award nominee Demian Bichir (“Weeds”) plays a charismatic, impressive Chavez, while Chino Darín is charming and incredibly sexy as young El. Director Natalia Meta gives viewers a thrilling, entertaining cinematic experience.
