Two small-time con artists become partners in a high-stakes scheme in this twisty, stylishly entertaining caper. Petty swindlers Marcos (Ricardo Darín) and Juan (Gastón Pauls) meet while trying to pull the same scam at the same time at a convenience store. The more experienced Marcos likes what he sees from Juan and decides that they could work together on some small jobs. One day, they get a call from Marcos’s sister, Valeria (Leticia Brédice), about a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity involving a fake set of rare stamps called the Nine Queens. If they find a buyer, they will rake in six figures. However, this scheme isn’t going to come together without a few hitches.
