Film Story

In the Argentinian city of Tucumán, Miguel makes a living as a motochorro, a thief who snatches people’s belongings from his motorbike. Stealing her bag from Elena, an old woman, he ends up hurting her badly. Plagued by guilt, Miguel tries to do the right thing, concealing his true identity and looking after her. The closer he gets to her, the more he becomes entangled in his own lies until he doesn’t know what’s right or wrong anymore.
