    • Synopsis
    • Edgar (38), a depressed TV repairman, whose wife left him and took away his son; and Severino (25), a medical student, leader of the Uruguayan Raskolnikianos (bio-communists fighting for the independence of Kazakhstan); are disparate beings, two strangers that all they have in common is frequent the same cycle of Noir Cinema. One day, after the movie, Severino tells Edgar as a joke, the idea of robbing a bank. Edgar meditates for a week until he makes the decision. The robbery goes perfect. Money transforms them, while Edgar is the new man of the 90's, who believes in material progress and relies strongly on credit cards; Severino embodies the old ideals of ideologies that die with the arrival of the new decade. About the robbery there are no loose ends. Everything goes well. But Severino soon begins to suspect of Edgar and asks for the help of his Raskolnikianos comrades: Benito, his ass-licking partner and Alexander, a Russian old man, drunk and incontinent. Severino makes his comrades believe that Edgar is an enemy to the cause and so; the three of them try to hunt the poor devil.
