Synopsis

Argentina, December 2001. A group of friends and neighbours pool together all of their savings to reactivate an agricultural cooperative and the economy of their small town. The day after they deposit the group's money in the bank, Argentina's banking system collapses, and they lose it all. But they soon find out that they are not only victims of the country's crisis, they have been scammed by an unscrupulous lawyer and bank manager who were poised to take advantage of the situation. In a twist, this small group in the town bands together and plan to recover what’s rightfully theirs.
