Thriller starring Sosa (Ricardo Darín, "The Secret in Their Eyes", "The Aura", "Nine Queens") as an ambulance-chasing personal injury attorney with questionable ethics & Lujan (Martina Gusman, "Lion's Den", "Valentin") as a young, idealistic country doctor new to the city.  After Lujan and Sosa's paths repeatedly cross, the two form an unlikely romance that is threatened by Sosa’s turbulent past. 

With traffic accidents as the number one cause of death in Argentina, bodies are currency and a black market strives to get rich from the personal tragedies that literally litter the streets.
