Plot & Details

In the "Villa Virgin", a shantytown in the slums of Buenos Aires, Julian (Ricardo Darin, 'The Secret in Their Eyes', 'Carancho') and Nicolas (Jeremie Renier, 'In Bruges', 'Atonement') - two priests and long-standing friends - work tirelessly to help the local people. Nicolas joins Julian in overseeing the construction of a hospital following the failure of a project he was leading in which paramilitary forces assassinated members of the community. Deeply troubled by his actions, Nicolas finds solace in Luciana (Martina Gusman, 'Carancho', 'Lion's Den'), a young, attractive atheist social worker.
