    • Synopsis
    • Two Ecuadorian twenty-six year olds, former high school classmates, run into each other by coincidence in Panama City in 1985. They haven’t seen each other since their graduation and, although quite close at that time, have followed opposite paths: Esteban works as a banker in Ecuador and is there for business, not always legitimate. Jose Luis presents himself as a journalist, but is really a member of guerrilla group Alfaro Vive Carajo, living clandestinely while preparing a new action in Ecuador: the kidnapping of a banker. Inspired on a true story.
