Synopsis by Tracie Cooper
Directed by Patri Ferreira, Alquimista Impaciente ("The Impatient Alchemist") follows the efforts of two men and their investigation of a mysterious death. When Vila (Roberto Enriquez), a disillusioned pyschologist-turned-cop, accompanied by his partner Chamorro (Ingrid Rubio), find a bound-and-gagged body of a nuclear plant worker in a motel room, the pair head off to interview the plant worker and the victim's wife. Though the case is closed fairly quickly, the body of a woman who had been partially devoured by wolves is found and believed to be connected to a mob boss named Vasili (Nacho Vidal). The first case is re-opened when the detectives discover that the employers of the victims were two dubiously run companies vying for dominance.
