The year is 2001, and Argentina is hitting the lowest point in its great depression. His glory days far behind him, retired soccer star Fermín (Darín senior) now runs a service station in a sleepy provincial town. Hoping to pull his family and their community out of decline, Fermín convinces friends and neighbours to invest with him to create a storage business, only for the fledgling co-operative to be railroaded by a conniving bank manager and a corrupt lawyer. Their money is placed into a savings account just as the banks are about to be frozen by the government, quashing their plans. They lose everything.

For a time things seem only to get worse, until rumours spread of a secret depository containing the co-op’s pilfered cash and much, much more. With Fermín as their Robin Hood–esque leader, the group conspires to infiltrate the cache…

Succeeds triumphantly as a thoroughly enjoyable romp. Well-written and consummately acted. – David Stratton, The Weekend Australian

A crowd-pleasing heist comedy. –  Variety

Funny, ingeniously plotted and with plenty of charm and energy. An impressive crime caper with a social conscience offering an ‘eff-you’ to the establishment. – Lynden Barber, Limelight Magazine
