Detective Chávez (the ruggedly handsome Demian Bichir), a family man and a tough cop, is put in charge of the investigation into a homicide of a wealthy older gay member of Buenos Aires high society. At the crime scene, Chávez meets officer Gómez (Chino Darin), a good-looking rookie who becomes his right-hand man and eventually bait in order to catch the murderer. As they get closer to catching the killer, unspoken desires begin to jeopardise the investigation. A breakout hit in its native Argentina, director Natalia Meta's gaudy vision was inspired by a string of real life killings in Buenos Aires rich Recoleta district in the 1980s, coming off like a tantalising cross between Basic Instinct and Cruising.
