With the transition to democracy, Chile’s president issues a sweeping pardon of all prisoners not charged with violent crimes. Among the beneficiaries is young Ángel Santiago and the veteran Vergara Grey, a renowned safe-cracker. The future plans of the two men cannot be more diametrically opposed. While Vergara Grey seeks only to recover his family and begin a new life, Ángel dreams of exacting revenge on the prison warden and landing a big score. Victoria, however, crosses their path, altering the course of things and forcing everyone’s destiny to change.

The cast includes Ricardo Darín, Ariadna Gil, Abel Ayala, Miranda Bodenhofer and Julio Jung.
