Ricardo Darin reteams with director Sebastian Borensztein after their successful Chinese Takeaway (Un cuento chino).The year is 1977 and Argentina's military dictatorship has chosen to throw political prisoners into the sea from Navy aircraft as a new means of execution. Captain Tomas Kóblic is the unknowing pilot of one such flight, and upon discovering the grim fate of his passengers, has arrived at the most agonizing crossroads in his life. Kóblic's next decision will launch a journey that is as extraordinary in nature as the orders he was just given are gruesome. As the military dictatorship spreads its tentacles into the furthest reaches of the country, Kóblic tries to hide deep within a vicious and violent Argentina. This mounting drama pushes towards a vibrant and violent outcome, bristling with all the tension of a good western while immersed in a very real historical context.
