    • Synopsis
    • An experienced scriptwriter, his apprentice and a film director get together and start to imagine a gangster film that takes place in the margins of today's Buenos Aires. Their protagonist Dylan, a brutal and handsome hero, gets trapped in between the war of the Korean and Russian mafia in the district of Pompeya. While the imaginary Pompeya is involved in a bloody war, Juan is involved in a moral conflict of ego and loyalty - and when pure fiction and reality are completely corrupted and destroyed, the unexpected happens.
