Synopsis

The city of Tucumán is overtaken by riots as the result of a police strike giving folks like Miguel, a “motochorro” (a thief who snatches people’s belongings as he rides his motorbike), the opportunity to run free. His latest robbery, however, leaves Elena, an elderly woman, seriously injured and with severe memory loss. Plagued by guilt, Miguel conceals his identity and after several visits to the hospital becomes Elena’s caretaker. His past deeds eventually catch up to him and his lies.

La ciudad de Tucumán es sacudida por disturbios producto de una huelga de policías, dándole a gente como Miguel, un “”motochorro”” (un ladrón que arrebata las pertenencias de las personas mientras viaja en su motocicleta), la oportunidad de hacer lo que quieran. Su último robo, sin embargo, deja a Elena, una anciana, gravemente herida y amnésica. Agobiado por su conciencia, Miguel oculta su identidad y, después de varias visitas al hospital, se convierte en el cuidador de Elena. Pero tarde o temprano tendrá que rendir cuentas por sus mentiras y fechorías.
