THE LOST BROTHER

Cetarti, a public employee that has just been fired, travels from Buenos Aires to Lapachito, a remote town in Chaco province. He has to take care of the corpses of his mother and brother, who were brutally murdered, and whom he had no emotional bond with. The only thing that motivates Cetarti to make the trip is the possibility of cashing in a small life insurance in order to be able to move to Brazil. At Lapachito, he meets Duarte, a sort of Don who runs the town and who is friends with his mother's murderer. Duarte and Cetarti form a strange alliance to collect the insurance money. However, it won't be easy. In the outlaw town, nothing is what it seems. He becomes entangled in Duarte's shady business, with an outcome as surprising as it is inevitable.
