Storyline

Based on the book from Eduardo Sacheri "The Night of the Heroic Losers" (Alfaguara Novel Prize 2016). In a far-flung town in the province of Buenos Aires, many things are about to die out. During the economic crisis that led to the traumatic bank freeze of 2001, a group of men decides to gather the amount of money necessary to acquire some abandoned silos on an agro-industrial property. But even before they can carry out the project, a scam makes them hit rock bottom and react in the face of injustice. Now it's about robbing the thief. This novel narrates the story of a well-deserved collective revenge carried out during a legendary night that will never be forgotten. Written by chepevm

The best Argentinian movie of the year!
19 August 2019 | by facundofrSee all my reviews

Based on the 2001 crisis, the movie present us a group of very different people with one objective in common: revengeance, not revenge: revengeance against the manager of a bank who stole their savings. The film is a travel with those tender characters and their suffering and desire of revengeance. 9/10
