1975, a small town in Argentina: Claudio, the town's most successful lawyer, is basically a decent guy, that is when he is not involved in various shady affairs, like arranging the sale of an abandoned house from which the real owners have vanished. The potential buyer is convinced that they will never return, so who cares. Not long after, the Chilean detective Sinclair arrives in town to investigate a disappearance. He has some very uncomfortable questions for Claudio.
With its colour palette and shooting style this third film by Argentinian director Benjamín Naishtat, who also wrote the screenplay, has the touch and feel of an actual 70's crime film. It also shows what was wrong in Argentina in those years. After Lieutenant General Jorge Videla had seized power in 1976, disappearances became a daily reality. But many looked the other way. The score is by Vincent van Warmerdam.
