Based on a 1965 true crime story set in Argentina and Uruguay. Twentysomething lovers Nene (Sbaraglia) and the unstable Angel (Noriega), nicknamed the Twins, are stickup men hired by veteran criminal Fontana (Bartis) for a big money heist in Buenos Aires. They're paired with young, pill-popping getaway driver Cuervo (Echarri) but things go wrong when the Twins become cop killers. The foursome flee with the money to a squalid apartment in Montevideo where they wait for new identity papers. The young trio begin to unravel amidst a lot of drinking, drugs (who knew cocaine was so popular in the '60s?), and boredom, leading to a lethal confrontation with authorities. Title refers to what happens to the heist cash. Spanish with subtitles.
