Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
Unhappily married Buenos Aires doctor Agustín (Viggo Mortensen) swaps identities with his terminally ill twin Pedro (also Mortensen), and gets caught up in his sibling's shady underworld dealings after venturing back to their childhood home in the Tigre Delta. Agustín has a great job, a gorgeous home, and a beautiful wife. But when his wife voices a desire to adopt a child, Agustín begins to feel trapped in a domesticated prison of his own making. He senses an opportunity to break free, however, when his twin brother Pedro turns up unannounced, and presents him with the opportunity to return to the simple life they once knew. But there's a catch -- Pedro isn't exactly what you'd call an honest man, and the moment Agustín takes his place, he also inherits the lingering conflicts that would haunt his brother to the grave. Soon, Agustín finds himself caught in an altogether different kind of trap -- one that Pedro may have been lucky to escape the way that he did. Soledad Villamil and Daniel Fanego co-star in this thriller from first-time writer/director Ana Piterbarg.
