Summary
In the streets of the Flores neighborhood in Buenos Aires, a series of characters in extreme situations tries to survive the collapse of a country and its terrible consequences. The Argentinean crisis obliges an older couple to take on a job delivering pizzas at night. Aldo and Rosita Peyró travel the streets of Flores, a neighborhood in Buenos Aires, like two teenagers, ready to face the economic disaster. In their nighttime journeys, they see up close the direct consequences of the crisis: crime, families sleeping in the street, gangs doing damage, abandoned elderly people and children, drunks, etc. Among these people and various extreme situations is the kidnapping and subsequent killing of a boy, Jonathan, a reflection of the underground horror shaking all of Argentinean society. Jonathans case triggers a series of corrupt actions in which many of Aldo and Rositas pizza delivery colleagues are involved. There are also institutions involved in the mix, but perhaps, though it might seem absurd, a convent could be the key to the mystery&
