    • Synopsis
    • A junior screenwriter called Juan Garófalo is hired by film director Samuel Goldszer to write his new film: a gangster movie set in Buenos Aires. In each meeting, the filmmakers create a story that takes place in an imaginary Pompeya neighborhood.
      So the characters are born: Dylan, the brutal and attractive hero of the underworld, Timmy, his disturbed and deaf-mute brother, his friend Shadow, astute and petticoat chaser, and Lana, the femme fatale of Pompeya who begins the love triangle. But Pompeya hides a secret and is disputed by the Russian and Korean mafia, and Dylan is caught in a sequence of bloody crimes.
      Nothing is what it seems: Dylan fights for survival while Juan, the writer who created him, lives with greed and misery the experience of an imaginary system of evil powers. And when pure fiction and reality are completely corrupted and destroyed, the unexpected happens.
