    • Synopsis
    • PAULA (17) has an innate talent for deception. She makes small scams behind her parents, but one day she is caught by the police. The policeman discovers that she is the niece of MARCOS, a highly wanted delinquent. The policeman proposes to her that she surrender her uncle, in exchange for her freedom.
      SEBASTIAN, the father of PAULA, is forced to track down MARCOS (whom he has not seen for almost 20 years) to ask him to surrender. Following the "TURCO", partner of MARCOS, they finally find him.
      MARCOS refuses to help SEBASTIAN and his daughter, but the POLICE that has been following them, enters the scene. If they want to save themselves from jail, now they must participate in a select game of poker and give the profits to the POLICEMAN.
      SEBASTIAN, MARCOS and TURCO elaborate a strategy to end up with the POLICEMAN and the BUSINESSMAN (the victim) in the same table, and make him to lose.
      In the process, MARCOS finds out that the real intentions of the POLICEMAN are others: To steal a valuable vase that the BUSINESSMAN has in his house. MARCOS decides to keep everything: the Vase and the money of the game, but it is discovered by the POLICEMAN that takes PAULA hostage. In the confrontation, MARCOS ends up killing the policeman and all of them escape with empty hands. Days later, they will discover that they have been victims of a deception and that the POLICEMAN had an even greater secret.
