    • Synopsis
    • A world on the brink of collapse. The climate change and the indiscriminate use of technology led to the decline of public services and the emptying of large cities. Buenos Aires is no exception, at night you can walk down the street alone just listening to the distant sound of ambulances that patrol the areas with more concentration and resistance, where it come into play the few resources that still remain in town.
      In this context Chockler lives in a half-empty building in the periphery, where it is easier to hide and carry out his profession as contract killer. But his anonymity is interrupted when he receives a job offer right in his own room. Suddenly, a girl appears in there to bring him a large sum of money that he can’t deny and the mission to find a mysterious man named Victor, dead or alive. Another reason for accepting the challenge is the attraction of the beautiful and enigmatic girl named Lucrecia. The commissioned work from the beginning has dark spots: descriptions, motivations and clues are confusing. For that reason Chockler runs his own research to Lucrecia and her environment. Gradually, he discovers a network of implications between horse races, genetic experiments, and a series of strange events, mysterious and superhuman nature, in the deep night of the city.
      Chockler finally finds Victor, though the bullets do not seem to hurt him, he discovers that Victor belongs to another species or mutation that allows him to withstand time and violence. Meanwhile, following the traces of Lucrecia, there’s evidence of a huge animal fury, which it’s evident in the bodies that in spite of herself she leaves behind, victims of those moments where some type of wild instinct comes into play.
      Victor intercepts Lucrecia before being seen and explains that he shouldn’t to be found, it is dangerous to use his DNA to find the formula his body’s endurance. Lucrecia, still disoriented from their disagreement, just think of recovering some lost paradise of the past, and the end of the loneliness.
      Things get complicated for Chockler, which is intercepted by the organization of The Doctor, a paramilitary group operating in the city with red ambulances in order to maintain the control of the main strategic areas and take over the investigation in the pursuit of the objective of finding Victor and his blood before anyone else. However, Chockler turns out to be more stubborn than the Doctors organization had anticipated, and he takes things to the extreme, having nothing to lose after the collapse of the world he knew.
      Meanwhile the city is on fire, new players came into play, there’s more resistance in the streets and more oppression attempt by the major organizations which are reorganized around the power that involves having captured Victor. The events rush and chaos appears.
      Lucrecia and Chockler meet again. In that context something new is reborn, new generations operate in a circular motion in the world, and everything starts once again in the city of Buenos Aires.
