Storyline

It's Friday night in Asunción, Paraguay and the temperature is sweltering. Víctor, a 17-year-old wheelbarrow delivery boy, dreams of becoming famous and covets a fancy cellular phone in the infamous Mercado 4. He's offered a chance to deliver seven boxes with unknown contents in exchange for a quick US$100. But what sounds like an easy job soon gets complicated. Something in the boxes is highly coveted and Víctor and his pursuers quickly find themselves caught up in a crime they know nothing about. Written by Anonymous

terrific kinetic ride with some dark humor
17 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

Victor is a poor kid who moves boxes on his cart in the market. He needs money to get a cell phone with a camera. He gets a job to transport 7 boxes. It's very sketchy. He gets a half of a torn US $100 bill. He's told to guard it with his life until he gets a call. Another porter is after the boxes. With his wacky friend Liz's help, he tries to stay one step ahead of everybody.

The desperation for money is palpable and I love that he needs the money for a cell phone. It's not something that comes to my mind right away. However it's so obvious if the kid doesn't have one. It makes the movie even more compelling. The movie is great technically. There is real kinetic energy in the camera work. The story is solid and full of thrills. There is also a bit of gallows humor. It's a terrific indie.
